Shipowners: NGO environmental critique is imaginative

Secretary General of the ICS Peter Hinchcliffe.

The report, that the Brussels-based NGO Transport & Environment presented last week along with another NGO Seas At Risk, is more confusing than beneficial. The report, which was compiled by the consultant agency CE Delft, pointed to the fact that the energy efficiency of ships has not improved since 1990 and this is unacceptable, according to the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS).

The main conclusion of the study was formulated by Bill Hemmings, who is the aviation & shipping manager at Transport & Environment, in a press release last week.
