Global Logistics Emissions Council (GLEC)

Industry wants alignment between initiatives in order to achieve harmonized methodologies across the global multimodal supply chain. The Global Logistics Emissions Council (GLEC) of industry led/backed initiatives and leading shippers and companies involved in freight movement was established in December 2013 to achieve this. Current members are Green Freight EuropeGreen Freight Asia, SmartWay (through Edgar Blanco of MIT), Clean Cargo Working Group, IATAEcoTransITLean & GreenNTM, and leading logistics companies: DB SchenkerDHLKuehne+NagelMaersk, and TNT

Led by SFC, the GLEC will

  • Develop Global Framework for Freight Emissions Methodologies, which builds on existing methodologies and the EU funded project COFRET
  • Drive the acceptance and use of the Global Framework by industry, government and other players
  • Take the application of the Global Framework to scale across the global freight supply chain to generate and communicate credible emissions data to customers, consumers and investors

While industry-led, GLEC will consult and engage other stakeholders throughout this process to ensure that the Global Framework is credible and usable to all players. For more information please go to downloads. To join GLEC click here for the application form.
