Make your transport greener
IWT Greening tool
Interactive web-tool for ship owners and policy makers looking for emission and fuel consumption reduction of inland waterways vessels based on retrofit options.
Eco-calculateur, VNF (in French)
This tool compares inland waterway transport to trucking with regard to environmental impacts. It indicates how much external costs can be avoided in case of a modal shift.
EcoTransIT World means Ecological Transport Information Tool – worldwide (ETW). It is a free of charge internet application, which shows the environmental impact of freight transport – for any route in the world and any transport mode. More than showing the impact of a single shipment, it analyses and compares different transport chains with each other, thus making evident which solution has the lowest impact.
Green Award Programme
The Green Award programme promotes safer and cleaner inland navigation and advocates an integrated approach for European inland waterways. Some ports provide reduction on port dues to clean ships certified by Green Award. More than 500 inland vessels have already been certified with a Green Award.
