Clean Shipping Index is an independent and holistic labelling system of vessels' environmental performance; a practical tool for differentiating port- and fairway fees or choosing more sustainable shipping alternatives.


our vision:

clean ships sailing in healthy seas

How will we accomplish this?
By providing key players in the maritime supply chain with the information they need to make environmentally responsible decisions. This results in competitive economic advantages for environmental leaders in the shipping industry. It’s a win-win situation for both environment and business.

Clean Shipping Index is a non-profit organisation
All our work is coordinated by a secretariat and overseen by an independent board. To guarantee that all technical data is fairly scored and up-to-date, the methodology is reviewed by a technical committee of experts and researchers.
