Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics Earns Shipping’s First Certification For Green House Gas Emissions

14 April 2010 – Oslo, Norway - Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics (www.2wglobal.com), a global shipping and logistics company, has become the first shipping company to receive formal 3rd party verification of its inventory processes for green house gas emissions.

“Guided by our future vision of a zero-emissions supply chain, WWL has adopted rigorous emissions inventory processes based upon the Green House Gas (GHG) Protocol. This will enable us to better manage and reduce carbon emissions and related costs from our customers’ global supply chains,” explained Kai Kraass, COO of Ocean Services at Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics.

Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics contracted Det Norske Veritas AS (DNV), the world’s leading independent provider of risk management services, to provide an independent third-party limited assurance verification that WWL’s Ocean Transportation GHG inventory conforms to the accounting requirements of ISO 14064-1* and the GHG protocol.

Melanie Moore, Global Head of Environment and Quality for Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics, commented: “As an environmental forerunner in shipping, we continue to be bold and transparent in our environmental commitments to customers and the shipping industry at large.

“We are committed to reducing our customers’ carbon risk by formalising inventories which will, in the near future, be subject to government regulation,” Ms. Moore concluded.
