”Welcome to the Arlanda Express, the fastest and most eco-friendly set to trip between Stockholm and Arlanda airport.”
I travel a lot in my job with the airport Express and hear each time this claim. Fastest, sure. But the most environmentally friendly?
the Company claims that they use green electricity, but there is nothing more about this on their website. Moreover, the electricity is just the direct operation. I am miljöteknolog and look in the full life cycle and then it looks completely different.
and installations at Arlanda and stockholm Central station. Added to this is maintenance and then I wonder if all of it is calculated in carbon dioxide equivalents according to the EU ets, the carbon footprint of a single journey between the airport and Stockholm actually cost per person.
I e-mailed the airport Express several times in the last year with the above question. Once I got the answer: my question was directed to someone who is responsible for the environment, but he thought probably not that it was important enough to answer.
to publish all the evidence and calculations to support the claim. At the same time, I defy Flygbussarna and SL to show how much carbon it costs in a life cycle perspective to travel to the airport by bus or light rail.
It is well important to we can make environmentally conscious choices about how we will take us to the airport then we can begin our not-so-environmentally friendly flight.
the Environment is too important to allow the airport Express to abuse it for advertising.
