As a member of the global community, we have to take responsibility for today’s environmental issues. Evergreen Line continues with their long-term efforts in environmental protection in order to pave the way for a more sustainable future.

Participating in a project that enables scientists to learn more about climate change

Since 2008, Evergreen has been participating in the Pacific Greenhouse Gases Measurement Project. The goal of the project is to establish a high-resolution observation about greenhouse gases such as ozone, water vapor and carbon dioxide. The project collects emission data from satellites, commercial aircraft – and with Evergreen Line’s participation – from container vessels. This enables scientists to monitor the distribution of greenhouse gases over oceans in three dimensions and conduct research about the global warming and climate change.

Equipping new vessels with innovative bow design to save energy

In line with the stringent eco-friendly criteria that Evergreen has implemented in their operations, their B-type ships will be equipped with innovative Sea-Sword Bow technology. This energy-saving bow design enables the ships to maintain optimum performance in various navigational conditions and to reduce fuel consumption by approximately five percent compared to traditional bow designs.
