Global Logistics Emissions Council
What is GLEC?
GLEC drives widespread, transparent, and consistent calculation and reporting of logistics GHG emissions.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.
GLEC is our community of organizations and NGOs dedicated to driving widespread, transparent, and consistent calculation and reporting of logistics GHG emissions. GLEC works to identify common problems, remove barriers and above all, share a conviction that emission reduction in freight is urgent. GLEC members developed the GLEC Framework to offer multinationals and their suppliers a harmonized, efficient and transparent way to calculate and report logistics emissions.
GLEC's work together with GLEC Members involves the development of guidelines, testing with companies, and advocacy for industry-wide uptake and aligned policy.
Organizations, who are on a decarbonization journey, can access GLEC by becoming a member of the Smart Freight Centre (SFC) Community.
This enables access to a wide portfolio of initiatives and projects to push your company’s emission performance and supply chain economics in collaboration with other partners. Becoming an SFC member unlocks solutions deriving from our SFC initiatives including GLEC, Clean Cargo, the Sustainable Freight Buyers Alliance and our future Air Freight initiative.
Our GLEC Leaders are member 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 current 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.
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.
