Benchmark emissions reduction for London port
DP World London Gateway has been working hard to reduce its carbon footprint
DP World London Gateway reduced its carbon emissions by 28% in 2016 earning the operator continued certification to The Planet Mark sustainability programme.
The port put the reduction own to increased efficiencies and economies of scale with containers, hybrid-electric shuttle carriers, better recording and tracking of energy use and reduced energy consumption in buildings.
“As an operator touching so many of the UK’s imported and exported products, everything we do to be cleaner and greener means that the supply chain operations of our customers and their customers are just that little bit more sustainable too,” said Chris Lewis, CEO, DP World London Gateway.
“We will not stop here though. [We] will continue to drive down carbon emissions and invest in innovative, green solutions to maintain and enhance the precious environment and community around us.”
Just recently, port technology supplier Kalmar revealed it would be trialling the world’s first ever fully-electric shuttle carrier at DP World London Gateway Port and solar panels have recently been fitted to the top of terminal tractors to assist with electric power to the tractor cabs when their engines are off.
The Planet Mark is an internationally-recognised and trusted sustainability certification programme recognising commitment to continuous improvement in sustainability.
These results were published as DP World London Gateway Port took part in Go Green Week from 18 to September 22, a global environmental campaign that takes place in ports all over the world.
