Emissions win for Bremen ports

Industry Database

Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions at Bremen’s ports have dropped from 7,000 tonnes in 2011 to 2,065 tonnes in 2016.

According to port operator bremenports, energy efficiency measures, the consistent use of renewable power and photovoltaic systems were responsible for the decline.

In some instances, measured values for air pollutants in and around the ports of Bremen and Bremerhaven were considerably lower than prescribed European limits.

More information on the ports’ environmental record can be found in bremenports’ Environmental Report 2018: Ports of Bremen/Bremerhaven.

“This new report provides us with comprehensive data on the environmental impact caused by port operations,” said Robert Howe, bremenports managing director. “It also substantiates the efforts we are making to ensure that we continue to live up to our greenports claim in future.”

The greenports programme offers information about the status and objectives of the ports’ activities within the areas of their economic, ecological and social influence.
