Switching to energy efficient technologies and upgrading our processes are the backbone of our reduction strategy, whilst in-house energy assessments and environmental engagement programmes raise awareness of the impact we have on our environment and natural resources to change behaviour.
Our focus on emissions has achieved a 15% intensity reduction of KgCO2e/ModTEU (per Modified TEU)19 from our 2009 baseline and for 2013, we recorded a 4% decrease in energy consumption against 2012 figures in Mega Joules of Energy used per Total Terminal Move (MJ Energy/TTM).
Scope 1 Emission
A reporting organisation’s direct emissions. Examples include: emissions from fuel burned onsite e.g. diesel, gas, petrol, LPG, oil, and refrigerants.
Scope 2 Emission
A reporting organisation’s indirect emissions. Examples include: emissions associated with the generation of electricity (grid), heating/cooling, or steam purchased for own consumption.
