The release of the emissions data—reported by 13 of the world’s leading ocean container carriers, which represent...more than 60 percent of ocean container capacity worldwide—provides the shipping industry with high-quality data for use in carbon footprint calculations. The paper...indicates that average carbon-dioxide emissions for global ocean transportation routes declined by nearly 6 percent from 2010 to 2011.
