Smart Freight GLEC

Calculate and report credible emissions

To manage and improve something you need a performance indicator. Smart Freight Leadership starts with calculating and reporting emissions across the global logistics supply chain. Companies that do this are better able to make informed decisions, based on relevant performance indicators, and to communicate with customers, investors and other stakeholders.

To help, we established the Global Logistics Emissions Council (GLEC) as a voluntary partnership of companies, industry associations and green freight programs, backed by governments and other stakeholders. Together, we developed the GLEC Framework for logistics emissions accounting and reporting.

Set Science Based targets

Companies that set emission reduction targets benefit from knowing what they are aiming for and can thus avoid that, while actions individually may look impressive, these fail to deliver emission reductions at scale. Setting science-based targets means that a company’s targets are in line with the Paris Agreement goals.

We contributed to the development of the transport guidance of the Science-Based Targets Initiative (SBTi), which helps companies to set emission reduction targets in a way that is consistent with the GLEC Framework. We can help you set targets for freight.
