ESC, as a member of the Alliance for Logistics Innovation through Collaboration in Europe (ALICE) is supporting the “ALICE roadmap towards zero emissions logistics 2050”. The roadmap, issued on the 12th of December, is specifying the ways how freight transport and logistics could go towards decarbonisation. The document clarifies what the roles of governments, research and development institutes, and civil society are.
The ALICE Roadmap also provides an overview of existing roadmaps for different transport modes and regions, a framework for decarbonisation, and an overview of stakeholders’ priorities within the solution areas and corresponding decarbonisation opportunities.
The European Commission presented the European Green Deal on the 11th of December with the ambition for Europe to be the first climate-neutral continent in the world by 2050. This will be achieved with a two-step approach, designed to reduce CO2 emissions by 50%, if not 55%, by no later than 2030. Being aware of the huge challenges and deep transformation required of freight transport and logistics to meet climate goals, ALICE in its roadmap provides clear guidance for freight and logistics companies.
