The container ship “Pride” of China Ocean Shipping Company (COSCO) was
awarded as “the most sustainable ship 2012,” according to the Environmental
Ship Index (ESI) published by the port of Rotterdam on Saturday, April 20.
In 2012, more than 2000 sea going vessels were listed in the index. Five
vessels from COSCO stand on the top 10 sustainable vessels list, and Pride
ranked first.”We look at engines, we look at fuel and based on these two
issues we can see if the ship is clean or not,” Fer van der Laan form World
Port Climate Initiative told Xinhua. Peter den Breejen, director of Cosco
