On 19 November, the European Commission published the roadmap for an EU framework for the harmonised measurement of transport and logistics emissions, called "CountEmissions EU". The general objective of this initiative is to incentivise the reduction of emissions from transport and logistics through the establishment of a level-playing field for GHG emissions accounting and the facilitation of behavioural change.

A call for evidence was launched for this initiative, which will feed the upcoming impact assessment, taking into account relevant industry initiatives such as the GLEC Framework and the current work for the development of the ISO 14083 standard. A public consultation on the Commission initiative is scheduled for Q2 2022, which will coincide with the dedicated public consultation on the ISO standard, expected in December. The proposal is expected to be adopted by the European Commission by the end of 2022, after the finalisation if the ISO standard.

The European Commission opened a feedback period for the call for evidence and its roadmap until 17 December, in order to further develop and fine-tune this initiative. CLECAT will prepare a response shortly.
