OOCL won the award this year among some of the top industry players in the industry, recognizing our outstanding business performance and commitment to corporate sustainability.

OOCL has a long track record of outperforming the market, in both up and down cycles. OOCL is well respected in the industry as a financially prudent company with a reputation for its customer-focused solutions, quality-through-excellence service approach, innovation, and commitment to environmental sustainability.
Over the years, many important initiatives contributed to the success of the company’s environmental initiatives, including the development of innovative information technology tools such as the OOCL Carbon Calculator to enhance the transparency of carbon emission information for customers who are committed to their own environmental performance and objectives, as well as investments in the latest state-of-the-art technologies for new containerships, with advanced green features to meet current and future environmental requirements.
Earlier this year we announced that our organization is the first Hong Kong-based enterprise in the international transportation and logistics industry to be included in the FTSE4Good Global Index. It is an important milestone in the company’s efforts to achieving long-term sustainability objectives and strongly reflects our progressive steps to corporate sustainability.
