Finnlines Calculated Passenger-Specific Route CO2 Emissions
“Finnlines’ vessels are an eco-friendly choice for passengers,” says the company, now that shipping is coming under attack in the media.
Passenger-specific carbon-dioxide figures for 2018 have been calculated on Finnlines’ passenger routes, Naantali–Kapellskär, Malmö–Travemünde and Helsinki–Travemünde. The figures will be updated on a yearly basis and this will be the base for future calculations.
In 2018, CO2 emissions per passenger on routes:
- Naantali–Kapellskär was 13–14 kg CO2/passenger (FINNSWAN, FINNFELLOW)
- Malmö–Travemünde was 15–16 kg CO2/passenger (EUROPALINK, FINNPARTNER, FINNTRADER)
- Helsinki–Travemünde was 69–79 kg CO2/passenger (FINNLADY, FINNMAID, FINNSTAR).
Differences are due to passenger numbers and, for example, weather conditions and route choices.
