European Launch of the GLEC Framework
November 15, 2016 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm
The Global Logistics Emissions Council (GLEC) of industry initiatives, associations and leading multinationals involved in freight movement led by Smart Freight Centre, invites you to celebrate the launch of a universal and transparent way of calculating logistics emissions: the GLEC Framework.
Companies need to transport products to millions of customers around the globe. Leading companies want to be competitive and more environmentally sustainable by improving freight efficiency, tracking greenhouse gas emissions and lowering costs. Including the carbon footprint of logistics activities in business decisions (alongside costs, time and reliability) is only possible if emissions can be calculated consistently at a global level across road, rail, air, sea, inland waterways and transhipment centers. For the first time the GLEC Framework 1.0 provides this guidance, allowing multinational shippers and carriers to compare and select more fuel efficient modes and carriers and identify ways to increase efficiency.
The launch of the GLEC Framework follows a year of consultation and validation with GLEC partners such as Hewlett-Packard, Kuehne + Nagel, DB Schenker and DHL, as well as the issuance of the GHG Protocol Built on Mark. A next step is to mobilize companies to apply the GLEC Framework and integrate it into, for example, industry tools, green freight programs, and national standards and policies.
The agenda will be available soon, meanwhile register here.
