Implement the GLEC Framework

Considering to implement the GLEC Framework?

Based on our experience with other GLEC Framework Adopters, we’ve identified 3 common implementation pathways which can be adapted to meet your goals, data maturity & experience.

Do it yourself

If you have the internal resources to proceed without external support, then this is the option for you. This pathway works well for companies with well-established emissions accounting systems, and companies with existing data-sharing protocols with transport service providers/clients.

The GLEC Declaration, the GLEC Assurance Guide and GLEC Training can help you.

Let us help you

If you’d rather use external support to establish or update your company’s logistics emissions accounting system, then you’ll be better off with this pathway.

We offer a number of services to help bring your logistics emissions accounting in line with international best practice & your company’s specific needs.

Working with SFC Accredited Partners

You can also use external support to set up and manage your logistics emission accounting. This includes Logistics Emissions Calculation tools, Green Freight Programs and professional advisors accredited by us as conforming with the GLEC Framework.

These organizations and individuals can provide data (in a region or in a particular mode of transport) or manage your general logistics emissions accounting. Do consult with each one individually.
