Evergreen Line joins PGGM project

In a move that reflects its commitment to a better environmental future, Evergreen Line will cooperate with Cambridge University in the U.K. and the National Central University in Taiwan on the Pacific Greenhouse Gases Measurement (PGGM) project.
The PGGM project is currently combining data from the FORMOSAT-3/COSMIC satellites and commercial aircraft which is related to Integration of Routine Aircraft Measurement into a Global Observing System (IAGOS) by the European Commission. Now data will also be collected from Evergreen containerships to build a three-dimensional distribution of greenhouse gases over the Pacific. This data will be extremely valuable for scientists now estimating the total emissions of greenhouse emissions in the Pacific region and represents one of the key contributions from Taiwan in the context of global warming and climate change.
Evergreen is planning to assist in gathering data on two specific routes: Europe to Asia and Asia to Australia with the data recorder to be fitted on a S-type vessel and a P-type vessel. Installation of the instruments will take place in late 2008.
The Evergreen Group's series of S-type container vessels, one of which was named Ship of the Year 2006 by the leading Asian maritime publication Lloyd's List Maritime Asia, exceed many national and international regulations regarding environmental protection.
The Evergreen Group is committed to playing its part in the battle to restrict global warming. Striking a balance between providing transport services and being environmentally sensitive is not easy but Evergreen's strong sense of social responsibility will ensure that the company will seriously consider every possible way of minimising its global footprint thus enabling its customers to develop greener supply chain systems.
