As part of the pan-European logistics chain, EMPA is changing work practices and promoting technological evolutions that will reduce emissions for the part of the voyage that is under their control. The document encourages all its members to act proactively towards GHG emission reduction and the protection of the natural environment. They provide in depth recommendations for how pilots can act both ashore and at sea to reduce their emissions.
