What does this score mean?

GreenFerries Score B

These grades are completely unofficial and subject to change. Here is the arbitrary non-linear scale I unilaterally:

score average g·CO₂/km/person interpretation
A < 96 better than riding a car with two passengers
B 96-193 better than riding a car with a single passenger
C 193-289 1 to 2 times an average plane's emissions
D 289-578 2 to 4 times an average plane's emissions
E > 578 over 4 times an average plane's emissions

These bounds have been chosen to match with averages for other transport modes, as computed by the ADEME.

Ecoscore B
The Ecoscore compares average CO₂ emissions per passenger per km.
‟emits like 2.1 planes” means that the ferry emits more than twice what an average plane would on the same distance for one passenger.
