Environmental discount on the port tariff
The Port of Gothenburg offers a discount to vessels that report good environmental performance. Two separate environmental indexes – Environmental Ship Index (ESI) and Clean Shipping Index (CSI) – form the basis for the discount.
Vessels that have at least 30 points according to ESI or have at least CSI class 4 receive a 10 per cent discount on the port tariff based on GT. Vessels powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG) receive an additional discount of 10 per cent. Vessels operated by LNG with a mixture of at least 10 per cent liquid biogas (LBG) receive an additional 10 percent discount.
Environmental discounts are obtained provided that registration has been carried out in accordance with the provisions of ESI (www.environmentalshipindex.org) or CSI (www.cleanshippingindex.com). A discount for vessels operated with liquefied natural gas (LNG) is granted provided that it is notified to Port Control, Gothenburg Port Autority, in connection with the vessel's first call. The discount for vessels operated by LNG with a mixture of at least 10 per cent liquid biogas (LBG) is obtained provided that the vessel has reached the said interference level on a quarterly basis in the total amount of gas the vessel bunkered. The Port of Gothenburg reserves the right to request the necessary documentation to ensure compliance.

Liquefied natural gas
The Port of Gothenburg is working actively to promote the use of liquefied natural gas, LNG, as a marine fuel. There are considerable environmental gains to be made from using LNG in shipping. Sulphur and particle emissions are reduced to almost zero and nitrogen emissions are reduced by 85-90 per cent.
