First Climate-Neutral Container Handling Facility

Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA)’s Container Terminal Altenwerder (CTA) has once again received certification as a climate-neutral company from TÜV NORD. This highlights CTA’s pioneering role in the industry as a sustainable, innovative company.

In 2019, CTA was the first container handling facility in the world to receive climate-neutral certification.

The Chairwoman of HHLA’s Executive Board, Angela Titzrath, explains: “CTA’s renewed certification once again demonstrates the terminal’s innovative strength. While we are already celebrating CTA’s 20th anniversary this year, we are very proud that the terminal has been considered a pioneer for innovation and sustainability in the sector since 2002 and is continuously being developed further. Our technological excellence as well as process efficiency make climate-neutral container handling possible, and we are thus moving closer to our goal of becoming climate-neutral throughout the Group by 2040.”

During the certified period from January to December 2021, CO2 emissions at CTA decreased significantly by 26.3 percent to approximately 11,000 tonnes.

Processes that still result in CO2 emissions are offset with compensation certificates.

With these certificates, HHLA supports climate-friendly projects that are certified according to the highest Gold Standard of Voluntary Emission HHLA’s goal is to reach the same standard at its other facilities by continuing to automate and digitalise its terminal processes in regular operations. Innovation and technical excellence are keys for HHLA to develop sustainable solutions. These enable the company to continue to operate environmentally responsible while achieving business success at the same time.
