GLEC Framework for Logistics Emissions Methodologies

Tracking GHG emissions can be challenging because there are so many methodologies and reporting formats requested by different customers, countries and programs. To create a universal way of calculating logistics emissions, Smart Freight Centre established the Global Logistics Emissions Council, or GLEC. GLEC is a group of companies, industry associations and programs backed by leading experts, governments and other stakeholders. Together we created the GLEC Framework for Logistics Emissions Methodologies to make carbon accounting work for industry.
