APM Terminals Gothenburg offers certified climate impact calculations to customers
Most of us have come to understand and accept that we can no longer turn a blind eye to the climate. Sweden has set the target to reduce emissions in the transport sector by 70% by 2030. To reach this ambitious goal, we need to work together. That is why APM Terminals is now offering to help you calculate your carbon footprint to enable you and your customers to contribute to a cleaner environment.
Large consumer companies such as IKEA, H&M and Volvo Cars have a long tradition of being open and transparent in detailing their climate targets. But what does it take to succeed? At APM Terminals Gothenburg, we are convinced that this commitment needs to not only be made by the companies themselves but also be undertaken by the company’s entire value chain and logistics suppliers. Goods owners and logistics suppliers agree – our future depends on our taking care of the climate.
We reduced our carbon footprint – now we are happy to help you
At the end of 2019, APM Terminals Gothenburg launched the Green Gothenburg Gateway climate initiative as a way of contributing toward Sweden’s climate target. We aimed high and set out to reduce emissions at the terminal by 90% by 2020. Despite the challenges of the global pandemic, we are pleased to present results, independently reviewed by the audit firm PWC, that show that APM Terminals Gothenburg has reduced its carbon emissions by 88%.
“As a terminal, APM Terminals Gothenburg is a global pioneer in the area, having looked into climate efficient solutions at an early stage. The fact that we have now taken a step further in our climate efforts and entirely transitioned to renewable fuels at the terminal feels only natural. It is gratifying to see that so many of our customers appreciate and support our efforts. With all the lessons we have learned, we are now happy to help our customers make their own logistics solutions reach their climate targets,” says Magnus Lundberg, Commercial Manager at APM Terminals Gothenburg.
In connection with APM Terminals offering customer-specific solutions, we now give you the opportunity to obtain an independent calculation of climate impact.
“This service aims to aid our customers in taking a holistic view to review their logistics solution and identify opportunities for minimising their supply chain's carbon footprint. Our collaboration with transport companies such as shipping companies, freight forwarders, hauliers and rail operators has provided us with extensive knowledge of where there are opportunities in the logistics network,” says Lundberg.
The IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute will do the climate calculations. The institute is entrusted by Swedish authorities such as the Port of Gothenburg and the Swedish Transport Agency.
“A certified climate calculation helps us assist our customers in putting in place a sustainable plan for their logistics solutions. In collaboration with the Port of Gothenburg and other partners, Gothenburg will become a logistics hub able to offer customers a unique opportunity to contribute to their own, their customers’ and Sweden's national environmental targets,” Lundberg concludes.
