- Development of in-house software to track ship's carbon emissions accurately;
- Fitment of devices on board to accurately measure various parameters like main engine power and fuel meters to allow precise calculation of carbon emission;
- Strategic development for decarbonization, sea-going voyage optimization, fuel savings and ship's Hull optimization;
- Reduction of plastic waste; and
- Progress installing drinking water purification systems onboard their ships to reduce plastic waste at sea.
