A Brussels-based environmental think tank has named Mediterranean Shipping Co as the seventh largest emitter of carbon in the European Union.

Transport & Environment (T&E) ranked the container shipping company behind six of Europe's biggest power plants.

MSC emitted 10.72m tonnes of CO2 during 2019, overtaking low-cost airline Ryanair in the rankings (see below), as well as two power stations in Germany and Poland, according to the research.
