The European Green Deal is the roadmap for the European Union to achieve climate neutrality by 2050. To support it, a package of new and revised legislation, known as Fit for 55, sets out how the EU intends to reduce its net greenhouse gas emissions ( GHG) by at least 55% by 2030. Included in this legislative package is the maritime transport sector.

Despite being one of the most energy-efficient modes of transport, maritime transport constitutes an important source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In 2018, international shipping emissions represented 1,076 million tonnes of CO2, and were responsible for around 2.9% of global emissions caused by human activities. 


At EU level, maritime transport represents 3 to 4% of the EU’s total CO2 emissions, or over 124 million tonnes of CO2 in 2021.


The SIEM Group makes every effort to reduce CO2 emissions into the atmosphere and in this field it is successful.


On shore base activity:

Overall, these emissions have decreased by 51% from 2019 to 2022, from 254 metric tons of CO2 to 123 metric tons.


The operation of our marine and shipping assets:

Over the period 2019 to 2022 Our fleet trading activity has reduced carbon intensity by 13% due to the more efficient employment of a more efficient fleet.
