LEARN Industry Survey results

LEARN Industry Survey results on logistics emissions accounting and reporting

Energy efficiency and climate change are rising on the government and industry agenda.The Logistics Emissions Accounting & Reduction Network ‘LEARN’ project aims to mobilize businesses to reduce their carbon footprint across their global logistics supply chains through improved carbon emissions calculation and reporting. The project builds on and helps to improve the GLEC Framework for Logistics Emissions Methodologies as the universal method to consistently calculate an organisation's greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint across the global supply chain. The LEARN project is coordinated by Smart Freight Centre and its 13 consortium partners include the three industry associations representing shippers (ESC), freight forwarders (CLECAT) and IRU (carriers).

A survey was conducted between June and August 2018 among members of industry associations CLECAT, ESC and IRU to understand barriers, needs and priorities on calculation and reporting of GHG emissions in the logistics sector. A total of 47 respondents from associations, shippers, freight forwarders and carriers responded. Key results are summarized here. Results will be used to improve the LEARN project outputs and their communication and use beyond the project. All interested stakeholders are invited to participate in the LEARN International Workshop on 6-7 February 2019 in Brussels.s
