Green Logistics Terminal - A measurement tool for logistics companies enabling them to configure, measure, track and set targets for carbon emissions across each resource, activity, and operational location. The tool reveals the strong correlation between emissions-cost and emissions-saved – money saved.
Excerpts from the Paper
Upto 75% of a company’s carbon footprint comes from Transport and Logistics as a function, from the perspective of storage and distribution of goods across different industries. Today, Logistics companies are looking at going Green not just because of goodwill or compliance requirements, but also because savings in carbon emissions through Green initiatives directly translates into cost savings. A reduction in emissions of every tonne of carbon means savings of about €14.34 , which can be traded in the market for monetary benefit. Efficient logistics could save up to €280 billion worldwide. The ‘Green Logistics Terminal’ is a tool that has been developed to help Logistics companies define measure, track and control their emissions.
