Maersk Line: Big customers demand CSR data

Big customers want sustainable services. But Maersk Line is concerned about poor European control of ships' fuel in Northern Europe ahead of the new sulphur regulations, set come into force on January 1st 2015.

In 2013 Maersk Line reduced its CO2 emissions by 3.8 million tons. And the carrier's CEO, Søren Skou, is quite pleased with this development in a year where the company's business grew by 4.1 percent. Today several major customers request detailed information about the carrier's sustainability.

"Our fuel consumption efficiencies reduced CO2 emissions, and the same thing goes for sulphur (SOx) and nitrous oxides (NOx) emissions," says Søren Skou in relation to the publication of the carrier's CSR report on Monday.
