Green Port of Puttgarden

In the Port of Puttgarden, we work on measures improving our company’s sustainability and unsealing port areas.

Scandlines is a pioneer in terms of green ferry operations.

But not only our ferry operation is getting more and more eco-friendly.

 



NABU, the German Nature And Biodiversity Conservation Union (Naturschutzbund Deutschland e.V.) advises Scandlines regarding measures to make our business more sustainable. Apart from converting our ferries to modern hybrid technology, there are also activities in progress in other fields, e.g. greening our port areas, in order to increase biodiversity. 



In the Port of Puttgarden, we work on measures improving our company’s sustainability and unsealing port areas.


Just to name a few of the measures already taken by Scandlines:

  • a grass area of 1 hectare was turned into a colorful field of wild flowers
  • the provision of more than 40 nesting places for bats and swifts
  • the construction of an insect hotel
  • a newly built emergency access road was not sealed, so wild flowers can grow unrestrained. 


Furthermore, Scandlines compensates business flight trips carried out by our entire staff via atmosfair

NABU also advises Scandlines in the transition to even more eco-friendly ferries on Rødby-Puttgarden, solely driven by battery power.

The goal for both parties: zero emission ferries within a few years.

The ferries on the route Helsingør-Helsingborg already operate on pure battery power.
