Our vision is connecting Europe for a sustainable future, and we have a clear roadmap for how to get there. As a first milestone we have ambitious targets for 2030: to reduce the CO2 emissions from our vessels by 30% and to launch our first vessel without CO2 emissions.
With the economy picking up pace as we emerge from the pandemic, 2021 inevitably saw an increase in our CO2 emissions. But despite this, there has still been an overall reduction in emissions since 2019.
On top of that, in 2021 our vessels moved more cargo, meaning higher efficiency and a reduction in our carbon footprint. We have also reduced the pollutants we emit, as we switched to low-sulphur fuel across our Irish Sea fleet. We also reached 100% renewable electricity in our onshore operations, where renewable sources were available. Where they were not, we bought green credits to compensate.
