CLdN writes on LinkedIn that it is a top performer for CO2 emissions per tonne of freight carried. This statement is based on public MRV data for pure freight ro-ro vessels, as published on EMSA/Thetis-MRV.
CLdN RoRo says that, with a weighted average emission for its fleet of 36 g CO2/tonne-km ( or 67 g CO2/tonne-nm) in 2020, CLdN RoRo emitted 17% less greenhouse gas per tonne of cargo carried than their second best competitor.
Typical emissions of other modes of freight transport:
Plane: 1036 g CO2/tonne-km
Truck: 137 g CO2/tonne-km
Train: 24 g CO2/tonne-km
CLdN RoRo vessel HERMINE: 21g CO2/tonne-km.
This means HERMINE emits less carbon than a train, concludes CLdN RoRo.
CLdN’s ambition is to further reduce its carbon footprint and to maintain its position as greenest ro-ro operator by:
- Slow steaming
- Innovative propulsion
- Operational efficiency
