ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Shipping is the most efficient means of cargo transportation. However, in abso­lute terms, greenhouse gas (GHG) emis­sions from global shipping are signifi­cant and are rising due to the increase in global trading of goods. Greenhouse gases – carbon dioxide (CO2) methane (CH4) – trap the infrared radiation re­leased by the earth’s surface and keep the planet warmer at a temperature of 33°C (91°F). The increase in CO2 from human-induced activities is widely ac­cepted to increase the earth’s tempera­ture. CH4 has approximately 21 times the global warming potential of CO2.

Capital-Executive’s strategic objective is to preserve its industry-leading position on climate change by combining energy efficiency improvements in current operations with investments in research and technology to reduce the carbon footprint of new vessels.
