Environmental Protection


To protect the environment is a social responsibility of our enterprise. Because we have only one Earth, we must try our best to avoid damaging the environment and wasting resources. We must leave our descendants a clean and healthful living space.

Yang Ming provides global ocean shipping services. Our major responsibilities are protecting the oceanic environment, using natural resources efficiently, preventing pollution and paying back to society.
