LEARN Project

Businesses that measure their emissions have the opportunity to make informed decisions that lead to improved efficiency and reduced emissions. The Logistics Emissions Accounting and Reduction Network project (LEARN) empowers business to reduce their carbon footprint across their global logistics supply chains.

Logistics emissions measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) is improved and accelerated by LEARN in four ways:

  • Provide support to companies through guidance, training & education, and develop a recommended blueprint for a label
  • Test and validate with companies the practical applicability of emissions MRV and a label in complex multi-modal logistics settings
  • Promote and facilitate supportive policy and research
  • Develop and involve a LEARN multi-stakeholder network to maximize business uptake of carbon accounting and reduction 

LEARN partners will work closely with related organizations, initiatives and already existing networks. This includes the Global Logistics Emissions Council (GLEC), a voluntary partnership of companies, industry associations and programs. The LEARN project builds on and seeks to improve the ‘GLEC Framework for Logistics Emissions Methodologies’ that combines existing methods and fills gaps, making carbon accounting work for industry. For the first time, emissions can be calculated consistently at the global level across all transport modes and transhipment centers.

Smart Freight Centre coordinates the LEARN project. For more information see www.learnproject.net or contact learnproject@smartfreightcentre.org
