Eimskip just published its 3rd quarter environmental report. It is the 7th time the Company publishes its quarterly environmental statement, which is very valuable when evaluating environmental risk in the operation.
Overall, there are improvements in most areas and that reflects continuous work of Eimskip employees in environmental projects.
The rate of recycled waste goes from 23% in Q3 2020 to 31% in Q3 2021 (QoQ). The percentage of sorted waste is 78% for this quarter.
Printed paper is down 8% compared to same quarter last year. The reduction in printed paper translates into saving 180 trees per year compared to printed paper in 2015. Several projects are in the pipeline to further decrease printed paper.
The largest part of Eimskip emission comes from the vessels. When the GHG emission per unit of transported Cargo (excluding VSA related consumption between Reykjavik and Nuuk) is calculated the numbers for Q3 2021 is the same as in Q3 2020. This quarter was however favorable in terms of transported volume and good weather conditions which plays important part our emission and calculations. Eimskip task to lower its GHG emission is connected to UN Sustainable Development Goal – Climate Change.
Eimskip is constantly focusing on the future and part of that journey is to analyze future energy possibilities for vessels, trucks and other equipment’s. The technology is developing fast, both in terms of design and infrastructure for new environmental energy sources. There are still many unanswered questions, but the progress is visible.
Our environmental management solution is based on a digital platform, covering energy and waste management of vessel fleet, truck fleet, terminal assets, warehouses, and office space.
The statement below includes data collected from Eimskip Iceland, Faroe Ship, and Eimskip Norway shipping department. Eimskip is working on extending the environmental report for all operations around the world.
