New guidance to support logistics industry towards zero emissions

As an associate partner of the Global Logistics Emissions Council, ESC welcomes a new initiative of the Smart Freight Centre and WBCSD co-developed with 30+ global companies to advance the quantification of logistics emissions and support the logistics industry on their journey to zero emissions.

Smart Freight Centre and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) are united in a mission to increase transparency on carbon emissions and work towards a net-zero logistics sector. Supported by the World Economic Forum and in partnership with over 30 leading global organizations, this consortium is taking the next steps in achieving net-zero logistics by co-developing an actionable and implementable guidance to quantify the impact of GHG logistics emissions from supplier to final customer: from end-to-end.

ESC Secretary General Godfried Smit emphasizes that “to really live the polluter pays principle, we must measure emissions in an efficient, fair, and harmonized way. And this is exactly what the end -to end guidance program is aiming at”.
