The CSI comment apparatus creates environmental information of sea shipping compatible.The Volkswagen Group is a initial German automaker to join a Clean Shipping Network, an organisation of load owners. In future, Volkswagen Group Logistics will use a Clean Shipping Index (CSI) comment apparatus to investigate and revoke a environmental impact of sea shipment.

The index allows a members of a Clean Shipping Network to establish a emissions of particular ships and particular routes and therefore to take current environmental criteria into care in a preference of vessels. Apart from chemicals and rubbish disposal, a index also includes CO dioxide (CO2), nitrogen oxide (NOx) and sulfur oxide (SOx) emissions.

Thomas Zernechel, Head of Volkswagen Group Logistics: “Within a Clean Shipping Network, Volkswagen Group Logistics will feature a efforts to safeguard that ships means reduce emissions and that empty gases are treated. In addition, Volkswagen intends to foster a inclusion of other criteria such as a rebate of particulate emissions in a index.”

NABU Chairman Leif Miller: “It is a suggestive step, that we welcome, for Volkswagen Group Logistics to join a Clean Shipping Network. Especially emissions of carcinogenic really excellent particles need to be restricted. We wish that Volkswagen will offer as a indication for many other companies in fasten a Network.”

Merijn Houghee, Director of a Clean Shipping Index: “Germany has many vast companies that can yield effective support for tolerable shipping. We wish that many other companies will follow a instance set by Volkswagen in fasten a Network.”
