GLEC Membership

The GLEC mission

The Global Logistics Emissions Council (GLEC) was established in 2014. GLEC has grown into a voluntary partnership of more than 150 companies, industry associations, programs, experts and other organizations.

The mission of GLEC as an industry-led partnership is to drive emission reduction and enhance efficiency across global logistics supply chains. They do this through global, harmonized guidelines for reporting and reducing logistics emissions that work for business.

The GLEC's work together with GLEC Members involves the development of guidelines, testing with companies, and advocacy for industry-wide uptake and aligned policy.


Our GLEC Leaders are companies that have a longstanding and intensive involvement with the Global Logistics Emissions Council. They support in determining the direction and development of the GLEC Framework, its work programs and projects and are often speakers at our training courses.



Our Members support the GLEC mission through participation in GLEC projects. We work in partnership to influence the future direction and standards for logistics emissions reporting and reduction.



The GLEC is supported by a network of accredited calculation tools, programs and strategic partners that share our vision of a zero-emissions freight and logistics. Our Associates support the GLEC mission and work with Smart Freight Centre on guidelines, development and projects.



Our Friends support the GLEC mission, stay informed on GLEC and related developments, participate in GLEC webinars and events, and are willing to share experiences and help raise awareness.
