Our logistics business includes 40-50 vessels and 19 helicopters in daily operations, plus roughly 150.000 truck transportation assignments per year. Our logistics activities accounted for 325.000 tonnes CO2 in 2016. Since 2011 we have worked systematically to reduce our carbon footprint, cutting CO2 emissions since then by over 280.000 tonnes CO2, which is the equivalent to a the annual emissions from 140.000 cars.
We use technical, operational and fuel related measures to achieve results. Examples are battery-hybridization and LNG powered supply vessels, shore-power supply for vessels, optimising sailing routes and planning for green vessel speed, maximising vessel and helicopter capacity utilisation and a truck pool with the highest euro class. We focus on fuel efficiency when entering into new vessel contracts; incentive schemes further encourage suppliers to ensure fuel efficient operations.
In order to contribute to the ambitions set in the Paris climate agreement, we aim to ensure that we reach full potential with our existing initiatives and have launched several exciting projects with suppliers and other external industry partners in order to drive carbon-efficient solutions going forward.
