Carbon-neutral Port of Helsinki 2035

Targets and measures to achieve them:

A 25 per cent reduction in vessel emissions.

  • Shore power capabilities for nine berths
  • Making alternative fuels available at Helsinki ports
  • The continued development of an environmental programme targeted at ships

A 60 per cent reduction in emissions from heavy goods vehicles.

  • Minimising the use of transport vehicles at ports
  • Introducing incentives to use low-emission vehicles

A 60 per cent reduction in emissions from work machines used in the harbour area.

The Port of Helsinki should be carbon neutral in terms of its own emissions by 2035.

  • Minimising the Port’s energy consumption by modernising heating, installing LED lighting, and increasing the use of solar panels
  • Acquiring necessary energy from carbon-free sources
  • Helping to lower subcontractors’ carbon footprints via procurement
