2021 VSR Season
May 15th - November 15th 2021
Despite ongoing supply chain disruptions, the 2021 season marked the highest cooperation rate in the program's eight year history. Over 2/3 of our participants' transits within the VSR zones were at the requested 10 knots or less.
18 global shipping companies & 559 ships participated
Total VSR distance: 179,530 nautical miles
Emissions reductions: 650 tons of smog-forming NOx and 22,201 metric tons of regional GHGs
Ocean noise reduction: 5 db/transit
50% reduction in ship strikes on whales
