EcoTransIT World becomes the first GLEC Framework accredited - GHG emissions calculation tool provider.

In January 2019, EcoTransIT World achieved the very first accreditation from us as a GLEC Framework accredited - GHG emissions calculation tool provider.

The EcoTransIT World Initiative (as steering entity) and IVE (as provider of the tool) have been a valued consultee since the inception of the Global Logistics Emissions Council (GLEC) in 2014, providing important input and support to the development and improvement of the GLEC Framework over the past three years. IVE and the participating independent scientists from Ifeu, Infras and Fraunhofer IML have helped develop, its own methodology of EcoTransIT World in alignment with the GLEC Framework. With the completion of the accreditation process we can confirm that EcoTransIT World provides calculations for freight transport and logistics operations that are in methodological conformance with the Global Logistics Emissions Council Framework for Logistics Emissions Methodologies (GLEC Framework) © ®

This accreditation also means that multinational shippers and logistics service providers, many of whom already use the services of EcoTransIT World, are able to implement the GLEC Framework by using EcoTransIT World.
