As global freight emissions grow, the need for a harmonized method for emissions accounting and accounting becomes more and more necessary. Accurate and transparent emissions accounting helps companies and governments set realistic emissions reductions targets and report actionable results. 

SFC organised a consultation workshop on 28 October 2015 on how the Global Logistics Emissions Council (GLEC) is working towards this goal.


10:00 – 12:15   
An introduction to the GLEC Framework – the background, objectives, approach and partnerships that drive GLEC forward.

12:15 – 13:30  
Networking lunch

13:30 – 16:00  (Optional session)
JA deeper dive in to the core principles of GLEC – challenges and opportunities in harmonizing carbon accounting methodologies, reporting requirements, data collection, relationships between supply chain partners and emerging policies. 

This event was organised by Smart Freight Centre and hosted by the European Commission
