The Panama Canal Authority announced enhancements to its industry-leading Green Connection Environmental Recognition Program. The award-winning initiative encourages the shipping industry to mitigate the environmental impact of their operations through an incentive-based system that includes the Green Connection Award, the Environmental Premium Ranking and the Emissions Calculator. The announcement took place on the heels of the IMO’s Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC74) in London, where the Panama Canal participated.

Rodriguez said that “With these improvements to our environmental and conservation initiatives, the Panama Canal solidifies its leadership in the adoption of carbon-reduction best practices. The proposed updates will provide our customers a more comprehensive picture of their environmental contributions, encouraging them to continue implementing good practices in the reduction of emissions and their use of the Panama Canal’s Green Route.”

Starting September 2019, the Emissions Calculator will feature georeferenced data to improve the quality and precision of the carbon emissions data of vessels transiting the Canal. The tool aims to give customers – and the Canal – clear insight into their carbon footprint to incentivize environmental stewardship and reduce greenhouse gases.
