The report found that CO2 emissions fell from 7,000 tonnes in 2011 to 2,056 tonnes in 2016.

To reduce its CO2 emissions bremenports, the port authority for the ports of Bremen and Bremerhaven, has introduced energy efficiency measures for the vehicle fleet and lighting at the ports, photovoltaic systems and the consistent use of renewable energy.

Managing director of bremenports Robert Howe said: “This new report provides us with comprehensive data on the environmental impact caused by port operations. It also substantiates the efforts we are making to ensure that we continue to live up to our greenports claim in future.”
