Some of our work to date
Our open Innovation Forum partnership with Carbon limiting technologies tries to solve some of the biggest questions around emissions reductions. This forum tracks down answers from universities, entrepreneurs and consultants. These are pitched into Peel Ports, where we then invest in the best innovation and deploy it at scale.
Our £400m investment into L2 terminal had sustainability at the heart of its design. Its electric cranes are energy efficient and capable of generating and exporting back to the network. All physical container movements are optimized to reduce energy consumption
Lighting across the ports is undergoing transition to LED, much of which also incorporate controls and sensors ensuring energy is only used when required.
We are undergoing trials in the use of greener fuels as such as Green D for plant and equipment
We are investing in and increasing the number of rail connections and multimodal services across our ports to reduce road miles.
Plant, Equipment & Infrastructure
50% of our vehicles are currently electric and we plan to transfer the remainder by December 2022
Electric trials of fork Lift trucks have now started
Our investment into new warehousing push our sustainability agenda, waste rain and surface water from roofs is collected to fill up the dock levels
Use of tarmacking with recycled asphalt to save 5m tonnes of carbon
