Quarterly environmental statements

We are proud of the progress we have achieved in environmental matters. This quarter we see an increase in percentage of sorted waste but in Iceland 82% of all waste is sorted.

GHG emissions per unit of transported cargo excluding VSA related consumption between Reykjavik and Nuuk is down by 1% compare to Q2 2020.

We see an increase in the use of electricity, partly because all of our harbor cranes in Reykjavík run now with electricity but also due to high volume of Trans-Atlantic temperature containers in our harbor.

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.

In the statement below the data is collected from Eimskip Iceland, Faroe Ship, and Eimskip Norway shipping department.
