Objective and policy on decarbonisation

As part of becoming a carbon neutral port, we have partnered with the technology company Honeywell.

The partnership includes assistance in the day-to-day management of CO2 emissions from the port and the development of methods for electrification, digitalisation and monitoring of consumption and emissions at the port.

Activities towards decarbonisation

Port Esbjerg is working on several concrete initiatives to ensure that we contribute to the green transition and reduce CO2 emissions.

The Port has been involved in developing a carbon management system, which has enabled the port to invest in onshore power supply. The establishment of onshore power supply has resulted in more of the companies in the port has seen the potential in switching off the ships’ generators and using green wind energy instead. For onshore power supply is cheaper and means significantly less noise and emissions of CO2 and particulates.
