During his presentation, Cyril discussed how the pursuit of a cleaner maritime industry, cooperation from partners, and never letting the perfect be the enemy of the good influenced EPS’ commitment to alternative marine fuels. He also briefed the international audience that at EPS, sustainability begins with accountability and that’s why we publish a CO2 emissions report as part of our annual ESG Policy. This year’s ESG Policy revealed that EPS achieved an Annual Efficiency Ratio (AER) of 4.4 in 2020, surpassing our target two years ahead of schedule.
