Port of Turku Ltd Environmental Report 2019 published

Turun Satama - Port of Turku

Port of Turku publishes annually an environmental report, which describes the most significant environmental impacts caused by port operations.

Our long-term work for the environment has yielded results. Emissions into air caused by port operations decreased by 16 per cent in proportion to the tonnage transported from 2011–2018. Energy-efficiency has also improved, as electricity consumption decreased by as much as 24 per cent over the same period. Our  environmental programme valid for 2019-2025 aims at improving those figures further and securing the well-being of the maritime environment. The latter involves our decision to stop disposal of dredging masses in the sea.

The report also describes Port of Turku’s cooperation projects in environmental matters and arrangements for waste management in the port area.
