Ports of Jersey has released its Decarbonisation Roadmap, outlining a comprehensive strategy to achieve environmental progress.

This roadmap builds upon the organisation's existing Planet and People Plan, demonstrating their commitment to sustainability.

Key Objectives by 2030

  • Achieve net zero emissions for Ports of Jersey's direct operations.

  • Reduce overall energy consumption by 20%.

  • Support business partners and customers in cutting their carbon footprint by 30%.

Roadmap Highlights

Transitioning to Cleaner Fuels

  • 90% of boilers will be converted to electric or hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO) by 2025.

  • All new vehicles electric, hybrid, or HVO-powered from 2025 onwards.

  • 50% of existing diesel vehicles running on HVO by the end of 2025.

Investing in Sustainable Infrastructure

  • Infrastructure installed to enable partners in decarbonising ground operations by 2025.

  • Electric vehicle charging stations available at both terminals by 2027.

  • Upgrading to energy-efficient LED lighting throughout terminals by 2025, and runway lighting by 2035.

  • Implementation of smart electricity meters by 2026.

Encouraging Sustainable Travel

  • Initiatives to support 60% of passengers using sustainable transportation to reach terminals by 2030.

  • Installation of additional bicycle parking for employees and passengers by 2024.

Innovation at the Forefront

Ports of Jersey positions itself as a hub for sustainable technology exploration. Collaborations are underway with Blue Islands and Universal Hydrogen to advance zero-emission hydrogen-powered flights. Also, partnerships with ALIAS are exploring drone delivery possibilities.

Commitment to Continuous Improvement

Ports of Jersey acknowledges this roadmap as a starting point, continuously evolving as new technologies emerge. Collaboration remains a core principle, with partnerships planned to involve the community, government, local businesses, and industry stakeholders.

Recognition for Sustainability Efforts

Earlier in 2024, Ports of Jersey received Level 3 ‘Optimisation’ certification under the Airport Carbon Accreditation programme. They are now pursuing EcoPort accreditation, aiming for completion by the end of the year.

Note: HVO (hydrotreated vegetable oil) is a renewable fuel alternative to fossil fuels, substantially reducing emissions.
