LEARN Industry Survey Results on Logistics Emissions Accounting and Reporting
Between June and August 2018, a survey was conducted as part of the LEARN project among the members of CLECAT, the European Shippers’ Council (ESC) and the International Road Transport Union (IRU) with an aim to understand barriers, needs and priorities on the calculation and reporting of GHG emissions in the logistics sector. A total of 47 respondents includes shippers, freight forwarders and carriers, as well as corresponding associations.
A full results summary can be found here. Results will be used to improve the LEARN project outputs and their use beyond the project. All interested stakeholders are invited to join the LEARN International Workshop on 6-7 February 2019 in Brussels.
To note, the Logistics Emissions Accounting & Reduction Network ‘LEARN’ project aims to mobilise businesses to reduce their carbon footprint across their global logistics supply chains through improved carbon emissions calculation and reporting. The project builds on and helps to improve the GLEC Framework for Logistics Emissions Methodologies as the universal method to consistently calculate an organisation's greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint across the global supply chain. The LEARN project is coordinated by Smart Freight Centre and its 13 consortium partners include the three industry associations representing shippers (ESC), freight forwarders (CLECAT) and carriers (IRU).
