DP World is aiming to reduce its carbon footprint across its 50 marine terminals across the world with new software reports reports networkworld.com
DP World, whose sites include the London Gateway in Stanford-le-Hope, is the first global port operator to roll out the Greenstone Carbon Management system.
In 2008, DP World started an initiative to reduce its carbon emissions by 27 percent over five years. DP World invested in data collection systems at its terminals and it has commissioned Greenstone to further develop data gathering processes and set up Greenstone’s Acco2unt carbon management system tailored to DP World’s methodology.
Charles Haine, global environment manager at DP World, said: “In order to meet our environmental targets we needed to fully understand the impact of our business activities. Due to the complex nature of our diverse business operations we looked for a cost efficient solution that was easy to use but allowed us to aggregate data from a wide variety of sources.”
