Wasaline introduces voluntary climate compensation also for passengers

Now passengers on the Vaasa-Umeå route can also compensate for their journey by paying a nominal voluntary fee. The goal for Wasaline is to reduce the climate footprint by at least 5% each year, and to operate climate-neutrally in Kvarken by 2030.

"By operating with biogas and batteries, the journey is climate neutral. Since AURORA BOTNIA started in traffic, we have reduced CO2 emissions by 27.1% and last year (2023) 10% of our journeys were operated with biogas. Our goal for 2024 is to reduce our CO2 footprint by 15%", says Peter Ståhlberg, Managing Director of Wasaline.

“We are pleased to launch climate compensation as our customers have requested this option. The climate compensation fee is used to purchase biogas”, continues Ståhlberg.

There has been great interest from the cargo customers and interest has increased in operating climate neutrally. Already today, Wasaline has freight customers who buy climate compensation and therefore transport their goods climate neutrally. Wasaline can today offer its customers emission-neutral intermodal transports to the continent via Sweden by train from the ports of Gothenburg and Trelleborg.

The sea route between Vaasa and Umeå aims to be a Green Shipping Corridor by 2030 at the latest.
