21 Apr Unlocking the Potential of Smart Freight Leadership
In the afterglow of the Paris Climate Agreement, attention is shifting from the events around the historic agreement itself to the key players that will deliver on the promise of a low-carbon world.
International-trade-related freight transport currently accounts for around 7 percent of global carbon emissions and, if left unchecked, is projected to increase fourfold by 2050 (from a 2010 baseline). We need bold business leadership from all sectors to ensure that the impact of international trade does not seriously undermine global climate goals. But creating a climate-resilient freight sector is deadlocked, largely due to a lack of incentives for climate action on the freight transport agenda. Logistix and Smart Freight Centre (SFC) are continuing our partnership to help companies unlock the potential of smart freight leadership.
