CLEAN SHIPPING ALLIANCE 2020 FORMED

CLEAN SHIPPING ALLIANCE 2020 FORMED TO SUPPORT EXHAUST GAS CLEANING SYSTEMS

The Clean Shipping Alliance 2020 (CSA 2020) represents a group of leading companies from the commercial shipping and cruise industries that have been leaders in emission control efforts and have made significant investments in research and analysis, funding and committing resources to comply with 2020 fuel requirements through the development and use of Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems (EGCS).

The Alliance aims to support and educate on the use and effectiveness of EGCS in order to help achieve shared environmental and sustainability initiatives.

Sept. 27, 2018 – Today, a group of leading companies from the commercial shipping and cruise industries announced the creation of the Clean Shipping Alliance 2020 (CSA 2020), whose mission is to provide information and research data to better inform industry, national and international authorities, non-governmental organizations and the public on the environmental performance and benefits of open- and closed-loop Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems (EGCS) and associated air and water emissions.

In addition to serving as an advocate for companies working to reduce marine exhaust gas emissions, CSA 2020 will support the scheduled implementation and effective enforcement of the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) requirement for a 0.5 percent global sulfur cap on fuel content as of January 1, 2020.

Founding members of CSA 2020 include (in alphabetical order):
• Blystad Group
• Cargill Inc.
• Carnival Corporation
• DHT Holdings
• Eagle Bulk Shipping
• Eastern Pacific Shipping
• Frontline Ltd.
• Golden Ocean Group Limited
• Grimaldi Group
• Hunter Group ASA
• Navig8 Group
• Okeanis Eco Tankers
• Oldendorff Carriers
• Safe Bulkers, Inc.
• Spliethoff
• Star Bulk Carriers Corp.
• Torm
• Trafigura

The companies in CSA 2020 have become leaders in maritime emission control efforts while making significant investments in EGCS in preparing for the 2020 sulphur limits. CSA 2020 believes that Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems will make a substantial difference to the ports and ocean environments in which their ships operate and will promote global environmental progress – especially the goal of reducing the health impact from airborne sources, which is at the heart of the 2020 IMO regulation.
