Environmental standards for innovative ship operations
The aim of awarding the Blue Angel eco-label to environmentally sound ship operations is to help reduce the emissions and releases of pollutants into the marine environment caused by a seagoing vessel. To achieve this aim particularly high standards are imposed on the management of shipping companies and ships, on ship design and equipment, and especially on the measures for the reduction of emissions. The scope of this Blue Angel comprises the operation on ships sailing under the German or a foreign flag. Excluded are, among others, tank ships, fishing vessels as well as sport boats and navy ships.
