Carbon neutral programme a priority

The Port of Helsinki’s carbon neutral project makes it a forerunner among ports.

The goal for the Group’s uncompromising work is to be carbon neutral by 2030.  The port has switched to carbon-free electricity in order to tackle emissions.

“Shipping accounts for 80 per cent of the port’s emissions. Of the more than 8,000 ships that visit our quays, half will be using shore power by the end of the year,” says Andreas Slotte, the Port of Helsinki’s Head of Sustainable Development.

An energy-efficiency project will also be carried out at passenger terminals to reduce their energy consumption by around 30 per cent by the end of the year. TR
