PRINT PAGE >Global Logistics Emissions Council (GLEC)
Create a universal and transparent way of calculating freight emissions across the global supply chain.
For the first time, it will be possible to calculate emissions consistently at a global level across road, rail, inland waterways, sea, air and transshipment centers. Multinational shippers and carriers that transport goods across the global supply chain can then compare and select more fuel efficient modes and carriers and identify ways to increase efficiency.
SFC has established the Global Logistics Emissions Council (GLEC) as a platform for industry initiatives, associations and multinationals to develop a global methodology framework. This framework will be integrated into existing tools, industry and national programs, ISO standards and the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol. For more information please go to www.theglec.org.
