Call for Participation in Logistics Emissions Measurement Trial
The consortium partners of the LEARN project invite companies to test and validate the practical applicability of carbon accounting in different multi-modal logistics settings. The ‘GLEC Framework for Logistics Emissions Methodologies’ as the first universal method covering all transport modes and transhipment centers is used as a basis. TNO Sustainable Transport and Logistics (TNO STL) will lead the trials, with support from other LEARN consortium partners.
Testing duration: April 2017 and December 2018
