The GLEC Partnership

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 partners involves the development of guidelines, testing with companies, and advocacy for industry-wide uptake and aligned policy.


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 Partnership 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 Affiliates support the GLEC mission and work with Smart Freight Centre on guidelines, development and projects.



Our GLEC Experts provide knowledge and expertise to our projects and guidelines.
