From 2011 till 2015 Danube Logistics has been strongly involved in a project on ‘hazard and crisis management’ in the Danube Delta. This project, with the focus on the safety of oil terminals, was carried out within the framework of the Convention on the Transboundary Effects of Industrial Accidents of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE). In 2015 a successful full-scale field exercise was held at the premises of the Giurgiulesti International Free Port. The project and the exercise lead to important conclusions and recommendations where Danube Logistics, but also authorities from Moldova, Romania and Ukraine benefit from. Many recommendations are included in the work and action plan on HSE of the company to further enhance the safety at the terminal. The HSE officer of Danube Logistics was invited to present the results of the project during a meeting of the Conference of the Parties of the UNECE Industrial Accidents Convention in November 2016 in Ljubljana, Slovenia. About 40 countries as Parties to the Convention participated in this important meeting. The

2019 CARBON FOOTPRINT REPORT ON GIURGIULESTI INTERNATIONAL FREE PORT UPDATED

For now four years Danube Logistics releases the annual Carbon Footprint Report developed in accordance with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol. The newest Carbon Footprint Report sumps 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.

 

In 2019 the CO2e emissions per ton of cargo transshipped decreased for the fourth consecutive year in total by 14%. This decrease reflects the increasing transshipment volumes allowing a more emission efficient use of port facilities and port equipment. At the same the introduction of energy efficient measures, mainly the switch from conventional to LED based lighting technology, caused the reduction of electricity related emissions. Danube Logistics will continue to strive for further optimization and reduction of CO2e emissions.
