Hosted by leading shipping and logistics publication Asia Cargo News, the annual AFLAS Awards is one of the most anticipated industry events in the Asia Pacific region. The awards recognize service providers from different categories for their excellent performance and achievements across a range of criteria. Award winners are determined by a three-step assessment process, involving more than 15,000 voters, which makes the awards results a true reflection of user opinion.
The Best Green Shipping Line award pays tribute to the liner company that outperformed its peers in several areas, such as compliance with regulations and environmental standards, investment in green initiatives, strategic planning, policy setting in order to reduce emissions from operations, and ongoing staff training. The award win recognizes OOCL’s efforts and resolute commitment to achieving environmental excellence and sustainability.
The 2022 AFLAS Awards were presented during a ceremony held at the JW Marriott Hotel Hong Kong on September 7, 2022. Commenting on the award win, Mr. Michael Fitzgerald, deputy chief financial officer of OOCL said, “We would like to thank Asia Cargo News, our customers, and our business partners for their support to OOCL and for the recognition given to our sustainability efforts. In addition to OOCL’s consistent and effective green initiatives already in place, our recent breakthroughs in the trial use of biofuel and in the ordering of seven methanol-compatible vessels have further demonstrated our commitment to caring for the environment. We will continue our decarbonization journey towards a better and greener future.”
