PLANET: Grow our company while reducing our greenhouse gas emissions
As a vital link in the container cargo movement chain, we are responsible for helping our customers effectively compete in the global marketplace by handling their cargo as expeditiously and economically as possible. We take this responsibility very seriously and have developed North America’s largest marine container terminal located in the Port of New York & New Jersey.
- Fuel efficiency program for straddles:
With freight movement at the core of our business, one of the best ways for us to reduce our carbon impact is to improve the fuel efficiency of our straddle carriers. We have replaced dozens of straddle carriers with new, more efficient machines that feature engines that comply with the most restrictive federal emission standards.
- Utility Energy Savings for Equipment:
Improved energy efficiency can significantly reduce emissions. As a responsible entity, we must seize each opportunity we have by reducing the consumption of all forms of energy on the terminal premises. One of the initiatives we have undertaken is to improve our lighting system by installing eco-friendly LED on our masts, cranes, and building facades.
While we take pride in our highly efficient operations, our activities also contribute to our carbon footprint. Striving for continuous improvement, we started quantifying our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in 2019, and have now implemented concrete actions that allow us to reduce our Scope 1 and 2 emissions every year.
