To protect the water environment and prevent oil spill pollution more effectively, Shanghai Dong’an has built three berths along the Shanghai waterfront. In July 2005, the company joined the drill of East Sea Union and received high appreciation by the Ministry of Communications for its performance. Shanghai Dong’an took an active part in the Huangpu River oil spill emergency response operation in August 2003 and got the commendation by Shanghai MSA.
Based on statistics, in hundreds of oil spill clean-up operations and training that they participated in, Dong’an has saved substantial financial losses for locals and considerably improved the environmental impacts of Shanghai’s waters.
