APMT Callao transitions to 100 per cent renewable electricity

APM Terminals (APMT) Callao is reportedly on pace to reduce emissions by 36 per cent in 2024, 55 per cent in 2030, and 100 per cent by 2040.

Its decarbonisation activities contribute to the company’s global decarbonisation plan, which includes the utilisation of renewable energy, improved energy efficiency, and equipment electrification.

As a first step, all of the electricity utilised in its Peruvian business is currently generated using renewable energy.

To improve energy efficiency, APMT noted that important steps include a $500,000 investment in 2021 to replace outdoor lighting fixtures with LED technology. This reduced lighting energy usage by 33 per cent.

APMT Callao intends to gradually switch its container handling equipment from fossil fuels to 100 per cent electricity.
