Green Connection Environmental Recognition Program

The Green Connection Environmental recognition is a program that promotes the reduction of emissions of gases that cause greenhouse effect, by recognizing vessels that comply with the highest environmental performance standards.

Launched in July 2016, the Green Connection Environmental Recognition Program awards customers who demonstrate excellent environmental stewardship, and encourage others to implement technologies and standards to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

INNOVATIVE WATER-SAVING BASINS

Expanded Panama Canal features 18 innovative water-savings basins that reuse 60 percent of the water used per lockage, saving 7 percent more water than the original locks.

SHORTER DISTANCE – LESS EMISSIONS

Given the shorter traveling distance and larger capacity it offers, the Canal reduces fuel consumption and therefore emissions, having a positive impact on the reduction of global greenhouse gases compared to other routes.

PANAMA CANAL CONTRIBUTIONS

The Panama Canal has contributed to the reduction of 830 million tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
