Updated Guidelines for GHG Accounting at Maritime Container terminals

Posted by

On 1st December FEPORT published revised guidelines for container terminal operators providing advice and instruction on the elements to be included and excluded in reporting greenhouse gas emissions as part of terminal-level carbon footprinting and analyses.  The EEEG guidelines, first published in 2012 were revised in cooperation with FEPORT’s Environment, Safety and Security Committee.  Through the involvement of Navigating a Changing Climate Partner Smart Freight Centre these guidelines now take into consideration the latest developments in greenhouse gas account, including revised emissions factors, and will provide a base methodology for including container terminals alongside other transport modes in the forthcoming revision of the GLEC Framework for Logistics Emissions Methodologies.
