New Agreement to Tackle Carbon Emissions

Smart Freight Center (SFC) and FEPORT have signed a MoU to implement the most appropriate existing methodologies for port terminals in the Global Logistics Emissions Council (GLEC) Framework, according to the PortTechnology.

The framework aims to tackle the global freight and logistics sectors carbon dioxide emissions, which account for 6% of the worldwide total.

The GLEC provides a common, global platform for industry to develop, apply and advocate for a harmonized logistics emissions accounting.

So that the  shippers and carriers that transport goods across the global supply chain can understand, report and reduce their emissions, as well as compare and select more fuel-efficient modes and carriers.

GLEC framework is now recognised as the logistics sector guidance by the Greenhouse Gas Protocol Corporate Standard — the most widely-accepted GHG accounting practice.

GLEC was established  in 2014 through a voluntary partnership of companies, associations and programs committed to the consistent calculation and reporting of emissions from logistics operations.

The next step towards aligning carbon accounting in the logistics sector is  the acceptance and use of the GLEC Framework by industry and government.
