Clean Shipping Alliance 2020


The Clean Shipping Alliance 2020 (CSA 2020) represents a group of leading companies from the commercial shipping and cruise industries that have been leaders in emission control efforts and have made significant investments in research and analysis, funding and committing resources to comply with 2020 fuel requirements through the development and use of Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems (EGCS).

The Alliance was formed on 27th September 2018 with a mission to provide information and research data to better inform industry, national and international authorities, non-governmental organizations and the public on the environmental performance and benefits of open- and closed-loop Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems (EGCS) and associated air and water emissions.

In addition to serving as an advocate for companies working to reduce marine exhaust gas emissions, CSA 2020 will support the scheduled implementation and effective enforcement of the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) requirement for a 0.5 percent global sulfur cap on fuel content as of January 1, 2020.




CSA 2020  supports the use and effectiveness of Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems to  achieve shared environmental and sustainability initiatives across all shipping sectors.



Commenting on the latest news release issued by the International Maritime Organization on the one-year anniversary of the IMO Low Sulphur Regulation (IMO2020) that came into effect on 1 January 2020, the Clean Shipping Alliance 2020 highlights the crucial role of the Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems in the smooth transition as noted by the IMO.
CSA will participate as an associate to the METRANSLOG - Middle East Transport & Logistics, a Virtual Expo and Summit, taking place from 08-09 March 2021, which will bring together local, regional and international participants who will showcase international best practices, pioneering research, development solutions, advanced trends, innovative products and new technologies for more efficient and even faster Transport and Logistics services.
Ian Adams tells Riviera News Editor Edwin Lampert that other EGCS operators can learn from CSA 2020 members' experience.
