Becoming a GLEC Accredited Partner

Become a GLEC accredited partner

To become a GLEC accredited partner, we will assess your calculation tool or green freight program through the accreditation scheme criteria about its ability to deal with different types of data, different logistics modes and any geographical restrictions.

Each accredited partner is issued with an individual accreditation certificate which lasts for 12 months before a renewal is required, and provided with Smart Freight Centre accreditation logo to state our partnership.

Help companies with their GHG data reporting process.

Are you a calculation tool provider or do you run a green freight program? Do you have an in-house tool that you would like accredited?

Our accreditation criteria covers the core aspects of the GLEC Framework, including, but not limited to

  • Calculation and reporting well-to-wheel GHG emissions, expressed in units of CO2 equivalent according to the scopes of the GHG Protocol Corporate Value Chain Accounting and Reporting Standard
  • Use of appropriate fuel emission values
  • Incorporation of emissions associated with empty running into the calculation outputs
  • The use of GLEC Framework-specified default consumption factors in the case that operator data are not available
  • Application of mode-specific guidance to help with alignment of calculations between different modes
  • Documentation of any assumptions incorporated into the calculations
  • Reporting of total emissions and emission intensity metrics
  • The ability to provide a commentary on input data-type classifications: default, modelled, actual and program data
