  • Towards Net-Zero Carbon Emission

    We are on a journey towards net zero carbon emissions from our vessels, and work in line with the IMO’s targets of 70% reduction in carbon intensity by 2050 (baseline 2008).

    Through many operational and practical energy management initiatives, we have reduced our fuel consumption across the fleet, which results in reduced GHG emissions. Our investment into pioneering LPG dual-fuel propulsion technology will also make a significant reduction in our carbon footprint.

  • Collaborating to identify and drive solutions

    BW LPG is pleased to be a signatory to the Getting to Zero Coalition, an alliance of over 120 companies within the maritime, energy, infrastructure and finance sectors, supported by key governments and inter-governmental organisations. The Getting to Zero Coalition is a partnership between the Global Maritime Forum, the Friends of Ocean action, and the World Economic Forum.

    BW LPG adheres to the ambition of the Coalition in committing to get commercially viable deep sea zero emission vessels powered by zero emission fuels into operation by 2030. The deliverables of the Coalition are delivered through a series of parallel workstreams established to identify and drive actionable solutions to meet the ambition of the Coalition.

Compliance with the IMO emissions and EEDI requirements

Regulatory Compliance

BW LPG’s fleet is ISO 14001 (Environmental Management System) certified. We adhere to the MARPOL 73/78 Annex VI Prevention of Air Pollution from Ships and also with the relevant flag states’ requirements.

None of our vessels fly the flag of a state appearing in the black list published by the Paris MOU.
