Maersk Line Ltd has become the 1st shipping company to obtain global certification from the US Bureau of Shipping for energy management per the Guide for Marine Health, Safety, Quality, Environmental and Energy (HSQEEn) Management.
The successful implementing of the standards required an obligation from all levels and functions of the organization, and it underscores Maersk Line's ongoing achievement to enhance the environmental sustainability of its operations.
The requirements of the American Bureau of Shipping for energy management are based on the international standard, ISO 50001:2011, Energy Management Systems.

This international ISO standard sets forth the systems and processes needful to enhance energy performance and efficiency.
Members of the American Bureau of Shipping audit team were present at Maersk Line's Norfolk, Virginia headquarters to verify conformance and present the certificate to the hard working team members that were connected to achieving the milestone. Maersk Line joins a select group of firms that have demonstrated their commitment to sustainable operations and enhancing energy performance in accordance with ISO 50001.
