Eurotunnel launches online emissions calculator for freight

Eurotunnel Le Shuttle Freight, recently revealed as the most convenient and least emissive way to transport trucks between the UK and Europe, has launched a new online emissions calculator to enable logistics companies to calculate their CO2 savings.

The ability to create a bespoke calculation comes at a time when there is growing pressure on logistics and haulage companies to reduce their environmental impact. With a truck travelling on a Shuttle emitting 12 times less greenhouse gases than travel by ferry, Eurotunnel Le Shuttle Freight is eager to help its clients further reduce environmental impact per load.

Once determined, each company will be able to publish their results on a tailored certificate which will declare how many tonnes of CO2 customers emit and, most importantly, save by using its services and benefitting from the short strait crossing, across a set time period of up to a year. One benefit is that companies can flexibly calculate their CO2 usage for specific loads via an online calculator, allowing them to demonstrate their commitment when tendering for new business or renewing contracts. Not only is Eurotunnel Le Shuttle Freight helping their customers reach sustainability goals, we are going one step further by also supporting our customers’ wider business goals.

Eurotunnel Le Shuttle Freight says it prides itself on its sustainability ambitions with an ultimate target of achieving carbon neutrality by 2050 and already succeeding in reducing emissions by 33% between 2012 and 2019. To support this impressive target, Eurotunnel Le Shuttle Freight has already introduced fully electric trains with 100% low carbon electricity in both the UK and France.

Christian Dufermont, Freight Commercial Director at Eurotunnel Le Shuttle Freight, said: “As a vital transport link between the UK and continental Europe, we recognise the importance of helping our customers become as sustainable as possible. With the increasing pressure on the logistics industry to reduce their CO2 output, we are hoping our emissions certificate will enable freighters to better monitor their environmental impact and to help reduce it even further by using more sustainable means of crossing the Channel.”
