Fifth Anniversary of the Panama Canal’s Green Connection Environmental Recognition Program
Launched in 2016, the Green Connection Program introduced the Environmental Premium Ranking and the Green Connection Award. The Ranking is an incentive that rewards qualified customers who meet high environmental efficiency standards with the opportunity to improve their position within the Customer Ranking System, which is considered when booking transits through the Panama Canal.
One year after launching the Green Connection Program, the Panama Canal enhanced its emissions tracking abilities through the Emissions Calculator – a tool that allows to assess the shipping lines’ greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions per route, including the amount saved by transiting the Panama Canal over the most likely alternative route.
