How does it work?

The Clean Shipping Index tool consists of a questionnaire with 25 basic questions on environmental performance of vessels.  They all go beyond existing rules and regulations and cover existing vessels of different types.  You can fill in vessel specific data of environmental parameters through an online questionnaire which is accessible via www.cleanshippingindex.com.  You can obtain a Clean Shipping Index account by contacting the Secretariat through info@cleanshippingindex.com.

The Clean Shipping Index questionnaire covers general information about the participating shipping company and its vessel specific data.
