Green maritime aspirations

Beijing: Li Shenglin, Minister of China’s Ministry of Transport, recently has emphasized that China must accelerate the establishment of a low carbon transport system to achieve energy saving goals.
Li said that the Ministry of Transport expects by 2015 operating vehicles and ship operators to reduce their CO2 emissions per tonne-mile by 10% and 16% respectively from 2005 levels and lower overall port energy consumption by 8%.
In order to ensure the realization of the targets, incentive policies and special funds will also be established by the ministry.
