Global freight is projected to triple between 2015 and 2050 and accounts for about 7% of carbon dioxide emissions worldwide. Compared to 2015, freight emissions might increase by 76% by 2050 but should reduce between 19 – 64% under a 1.5-2oC scenario under the Paris Climate Agreement. A transformational shift towards decarbonizing this sector requires reducing emissions intensity and freight tonne-km.
Our vision is “Smarter Freight” which equates to a journey towards efficient and environmentally sustainable global freight and logistics sector. SFC developed the Smart Freight Leadership Framework to create a common approach for what is needed for government, the private sector and civil society to deliver the vision, and achieve the desired transformational change and emission reductions at scale.
