Climate Action Plan
Climate action plan is not only an ambition
We all have to take responsibility for reducing our impact on the climate, in whichever way we can. Our plan is based on the nature of our operations, where vessels are our main source of emissions. In the short term, we are improving our existing fleet, making it pollute less and be more efficient. In the long term, we are developing new technologies, partnerships and business models. We are looking into every aspect of our business to make sure that everything that can be done done is being done.
Three tracks leading to climate neutrality in 2050
DFDS Climate Plan consists of two overall tracks covering the tonnage adaption in short term and long term, as well as a third track ‘getting the house in order’ that covers all other things like facilities and terminal equipment: The short-term tonnage adaption plan consists of initiatives to be implemented throughout the next 10 years, resulting in close to 45% reduction from 2008 to 2030. It widely consists of minor technical upgrades, including solutions like the use of the correct coatings on vessel hulls and decision support systems. But the fleet will also undergo major upgrades, like modifications of bulbs and propellers.

We will be climate neutral by 2050
We want to become climate neutral by 2050 and are aiming for a relative reduction of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions by close to 45% from 2008 to 2030. That corresponds to an approximate reduction of 25-35% between 2019 and 2030.

Getting our house in order
10% of our total emissions come from our facilities, terminal equipment, buildings, trucks, and other vehicles. This track deals with all the everyday activities not related to ship fuel and how we can do things smarter and better through procurement, production, use, and waste.
