Danube Logistics presents already the fifth release of its annual Carbon Footprint Report developed in accordance with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol. As in previous years the Carbon Footprint Report sums up and analyses the CO2 and CO2 equivalent emissions (CO2e) resulting from last year’s business activities of Danube Logistics at the premises of Giurgiulesti International Free Port.
While in 2020 the total CO2e emissions increased by 5.4% compared to 2019, the CO2e emissions per ton of cargo transshipped further decreased by 3.8% compared to the previous year. This decrease reflects a more emission efficient use of port facilities and port equipment at increasing transshipment volumes and despite extensive use of fuel for transportation of material from dredging works. Overall, over the last five years the major drivers for the reduction of CO2e emissions per ton of cargo transshipped were the increased efficiency due to the volume increase and the replacement of conventional lighting with LED technology. Danube Logistics will continue to seek for further optimization potential in order to reduce CO2e emissions.
