This advances our ability to reduce greenhouse gases and other pollutants on a global scale. Ships generate the lion’s share of air pollution associated with port activity. Since 2007, Maersk Line has reduced GHG emissions associated with its vessel operations by 42% on a per container, per kilometer basis. The Retrofits and TAP demonstration project with the San Pedro Bay ports will help Maersk Line reach its goal of a 60% reduction of CO 2 and other pollutants by 2020.
