Curious about each shipping lines’ container carbon emission, I found only 3 shipping lines provide CO2 emission calculation based on its shipping routes.

We hope more shipping lines will post their emission calculations on the web so shippers can get clearer picture about their carbon footprint from factories to points of sale.
