MOL Environment Digest 2018

From fiscal year 2018, we have issued "MOL Environment Digest 2018" which highlights our environmental work and the world's environmental regulations.

Further enhancing initiatives to reduce environmental impact as an Environmentally Advanced Company

MOL's Approaches

The Paris Agreement was established, United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted, and the International Maritime Organization reinforced various environmental regulations in recent years. Concern continues to grow regarding ways to protect the global environment, including measures to prevent global warming. The MOL Group established the "MOL Group Environmental Vision 2030" in April 2017 to clarify its stance on addressing global environmental conservation as an advanced environmental corporation.

Addressing Environmental Issues with Advanced Technologies

Viewing environmental regulations as a business opportunity and a strategy for differentiation, MOL proactively develops and adopts advanced technologies that reduce the environmental impact of our business and set the stage for real solutions to global environmental issues.

It is not really possible for a single nation to regulate merchant vessels, because they move all over the world, so international initiatives are indispensable. The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in the Kyoto Protocol directs the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to study measures to control greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in international ocean shipping. Currently, IMO studies, adopts, and issues various international conventions and regulations.
MOL continues its company-wide efforts to ensure compliance with a wide variety of environmental regulations.
