CTA recertified as the only climate-neutral container terminal worldwide

[ July 9, 2020   //   ]

HHLA Container Terminal Altenwerder has continued to significantly reduce its climate-damaging carbon emissions. TÜV Nord, which certified the climate neutrality of the state-of-the-art facility last year for the first time, has now reconfirmed its rating. The CTA therefore remains the only certified climate-neutral container terminal in the world. However, the development is by no means complete. Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA) intends to be climate-neutral by 2040. The CTA plays a key role in the attainment of this goal.     

Angela Titzrath, Chairwoman of HHLA’s Executive Board: “Anyone familiar with HHLA knows that we do not simply rest on our laurels. Though climate and environmental protection have receded into the background due to the coronavirus pandemic, this does not mean the need to act has diminished. Regardless of the current challenges, HHLA remains firmly committed to its climate protection goals.” This means halving its absolute carbon emissions by 2030 compared with 2018 and achieving climate neutrality in the Group by 2040.

HHLA’s goals make it a pioneer in the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg. In the city’s new cross-party coalition agreement, the CTA is highlighted as a standard-bearer for the governing parties’ objective of making the Port of Hamburg climate neutral by 2040.
