Peel Ports cuts GHG emissions by over 30%

Peel Ports Group has significantly reduced its greenhouse gas emissions across its port facilities by almost a third since 2020, as revealed in the group’s new ESG report.

Additionally, independently verified figures confirm the group has reduced Scope 1 & Scope 2 emissions across its port operations by a total of 32%, against its 2020 baseline and using a market-based accounting approach.

The UK port operator's Scope 1 emissions across its port operations have fallen by 47% alone during that time, largely helped by transitioning to using biofuels instead of diesel in straddle carriers and other equipment, and through the electrification of 97% of the group’s vehicle fleet.

Claudio Veritiero, chief executive officer at Peel Ports Group, commented, "As one of the UK’s largest port operators, and a major employer in the areas in which we operate, we are fully aware of the role we need to play in driving the sustainability agenda."

Moreover, the annual report aims to enable Peel Ports Group to effectively monitor and deliver on its ESG ambitions as it seeks to become the number one sustainable port organisation in the UK.

Finally, the report details investments and initiatives to help the port and terminal operator reach the net zero milestone by 2040 across all of its locations in the UK and Ireland.
