DFDS iddialı iklim planı geliştiriyor

We want to become climate neutral by 2050 and are aiming for a relative reduction of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions by close to 45% from 2008 to 2030. That corresponds to an approximate reduction of 25-35% between 2019 and 2030. These are the main goals in DFDS’ new climate action plan.

 

In 2019, DFDS emitted ~2 million tons of CO2. 90% was from our vessels. Continuing to do so would have a negative impact on the environment and climate. It would also put us at significant economic risk: customers will find more climate-friendly suppliers and the costs related to regulatory requirements will increase.

 

DFDS’ response to this is a new strategic climate action plan that will make us climate neutral by 2050. We are aiming for a relative reduction of GHG emissions by close to 45% from 2008 to 2030. That corresponds to an approximate reduction of 25-35% between 2019 and 2030.

 

Team members from the Technical Organisation, Innovation & Partnerships, CSR, and Strategy & Consulting have supported management in the development of this plan, and the Executive Management Team will track its development on a quarterly basis.

 

Three tracks leading to the finish line
The  plan consists of two overall tracks covering the tonnage adaption in short term and long term, as well as a third track ‘getting the house in order’ that covers all other things like facilities and terminal equipment.

 

The short-term tonnage adaption plan consists of initiatives to be implemented throughout the next 10 years, resulting in close to 45% reduction from 2008 to 2030. It widely consists of minor technical upgrades, including solutions like the use of the correct coatings on vessel hulls and decision support systems. But the fleet will also undergo major upgrades, like modifications of bulbs and propellers.

The long-term tonnage adaption plan is all about how we replace fossil fuels with the new generation of zero emission fuel. The new sustainable fuels are renewable energy stored in the form of for instance ammonia, hydrogen, or methanol. Storing, handling and using these new fuels is very different to how we do things today. We need to learn a lot to be able to make the right strategic decisions. Projects and partnerships will help us learn and share knowledge and reach our goals. The long-term tonnage adaption plan focuses on our new generation of ships.

 

Evi düzene sokmak toplam emisyonlarımızın kalan 10%'sini karşılar. Kısacası, gemilerle ilgili faaliyetlerimizden kaynaklanmayan emisyonlar. Elektrikli kamyonlar, binalar için enerji tüketimi ve hibrit / elektrikli şirket arabaları gibi girişimler, DFDS'nin daha sürdürülebilir olma yollarını geliştirmesine yardımcı olmak için tüm iş arkadaşlarımızın katılımını sağlayacak. Bu girişimlerin çoğu, çevresel etkiyi azaltmak için kilit tedarikçilerle işbirliği içinde gerçekleştirilmektedir.

 

DFDS CEO'su Torben Carlsen, “Şu anda bu iddialı ve kapsamlı iklim eylem planına sahip olduğumuz için çok mutluyum. Çevre için nasıl sorumluluk alabileceğimizi ve alacağımızı açıkça belirtiyor. Ayrıca, bundan sonraki 10, 15, 50 yıl içinde bir hizmet sağlayıcı olarak güncel kalmamıza yardımcı olacaktır. Çalışanlarımızın her birinin desteğiyle bu planı gerçeğe dönüştürecek ve aynı zamanda çevreyi ve yerel toplulukları desteklemek için mevcut çabalarımızı sürdüreceğiz. "
