A vast majority of the world's Top 20 carriers have started publishing data on their CO2 emissions and their future targets, but they all seem to use differing methods for calculating the figures, making it impossible to perform a direct, analytical comparison between the individual carriers.
Analysts SeaIntel has reviewed the carriers' most recent sustainability reports and found that they generally rely on different methodologies for calculating key figures, such as finding the base year for tracing developments, just as CO2 calculations are performed differently, with some carriers calculating their CO2 emissions per unit, teu per kilometer, while others settle for emission per teu. The latter means that changes to freight composition will have a considerable impact on the CO2 numbers, says SeaIntel.
