1. Streamlining Scalable Solutions
The ChallengeFreight logistics buyers find it difficult to identify relevant solutions and action initiatives to reduce freight logistics carbon emissions.
The ApproachSFBA will be mapping relevant initiatives of different programs and companies, aiming to identify coverage, touchpoints and synergies between them. This map will help companies to make sense of all the different opportunities to reduce carbon emissions in a structured way that is relevant to them and underpins the solutions that SFBA offers.
The SolutionsThe Solution Pathways matrix to ‘navigate’ the map and help companies zoom in on the most appropriate action initiatives for the needs of their business as well as provide an indication of what the potential benefits of each solution could be in terms of carbon emissions. We are basing this tool on the LEFV decision making matrix, which has already been proven successful. In addition to this, SFBA is also developing Net-Zero procurement principles and will be offering webinars and workshops to guide companies in how to apply these. We will be using existing support tools as a base; like the Smart Freight Procurement Questionnaire and work that has been promoted by Clean Cargo, related to sustainable procurement.
2. Catalyzing Concrete Collaboration
The ChallengeIndividual efforts of freight logistics buyers have a limited impact, and they find it difficult to find detect and connect with implementation partners to scale these up.
The ApproachSFBA brings companies, (Shippers, Carriers and logistics service providers)
and also relevant freight sustainability initiatives together in one place to help them identify where common interests lie and where opportunities for collaboration and/or sustainable procurement exist.
