Carbon Dioxide Emissions Saved with Eurotunnel
Since January, Freightlink customers have helped to reduce CO2 emissions by 1180 tonnes by choosing to cross the Channel using the Eurotunnel Freight Shuttle.
This data comes from a study carried out by a specialist consultancy JMJ Conseil who were appointed by Eurotunnel to draw up comparisons between the average CO2 emissions and other polluants attributable to Eurotunnel and the ferries freight/tourist traffic on the Straits of Dover for the year 2009 and first half of 2010.
Moreover, thanks to its geographical location, Eurotunnel terminal is just off the M20 motorway which can save up to 25 km to your journey. With less fuel consumption, customers benefit from a further reduction of 20 kg of CO2 emissions.
