Black Carbon Methodology for the Logistics Sector

Black Carbon Methodology for the Logistics Sector

A universal method to calculate black carbon emissions for the logistics supply chain was released by Smart Freight Centre that was developed with support from the UN-led Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC). Transportation emits nearly 20% of global black carbon, attributing to global warming and 3.2 million deaths per year. The Black Carbon Methodology provides a framework for calculating emissions from air, road, rail and sea transport. It is a supplement to the GLEC Framework for Logistics Emissions Methodologies.

Black carbon is part of the LEARN project’s broader scope of supporting businesses with logistics emissions accounting and reduction.
