How we work?

Our main role is to advise companies on how to develop and implement their company-specific Sustainable Logistics Roadmap using the four ‘Smart Freight Leadership’ steps: report, set targets, reduce and collaborate.

To ensure sector-wide uptake of GHG disclosure and climate action, SFC also plays an advocacy role and raises awareness among companies and other relevant stakeholders.

We put this into practice through four activities:

1. Guide multinationals and their suppliers to develop and implement
Sustainable Logistics Roadmaps, through guidelines, training and

2. Remove key business barriers through GLEC projects that results in
guidelines that work for industry, the first of which was the GLEC

3. Advocacy with governments and organizations for supportive policy,
programs and strategies in order to scale industry action

4. Raise awareness through events, workshops and webinars and by
publishing stories of companies that demonstrate leadership

To scale our impact we are present in Europe, the Americas and Asia and collaborate with existing initiatives, international institutions, partner organizations and experts worldwide. We’re positioned to lead and coordinate global efforts due to our dedicated purpose to reduce freight emissions, our subject matter expertise and our established network.
