NASDAQ-listed global shipping company Star Bulk has been awarded the first Certificate of Measurement from the Carbon Positive Programme for Ships (CPPS) after successfully monitoring its emissions for 12 months.
Star Bulk’s commitment to a carbon emissions reduction plan and transparency of its carbon footprint has resulted in each vessel within the Starbulk fleet receiving the certificate, which follows a year-long comprehensive carbon emissions measurement process.
This is phase one - 'measurement' - of the Carbon Positive Programme for Ships.
Star Bulk is now in the second 'Reduction' phase of the CPPS, monitoring the effectiveness of these measures to eventually receive the Carbon Positive phase two 'Reduction' certificate. This phase is effectively building on SEEMP to create a 'SEEMP Plus' that puts this regulation into practice.
