Decarbonising freight & logistics

Innovation & perspectives: reducing CO2 in European road transport

Four discussions on reducing CO2 in European road transport: what do we need to know?

F&L Innovation Forum takes inspiration from innovation to generate practical and concrete solutions to critical freight and logistics challenges.  Experts, leading practitioners, innovators, start-ups and scale-ups look  across the supply chain.  Discussions are confidential to those participating and aim to tackle core questions.  Consider your own strategy in line with what you hear from others and ask questions.

Coming up

Tue 23 Feb (11:30 - 12:30 CET)

Reducing CO2 in European road transport (3 of 4).  Continued pragmatic discussion led by industry leaders, start-ups, practitioners & experts:

Smart planning & smart operations.  Reducing CO2 in European road transport (2 of 4).

Practical solutions to bring you results in the short term, with a focus on short term profitability and service benefits from reduced carbon emissions.  Topics included smart operations, less air, multimodal, bundling, loading and routing. Impact on emissions can be 20%.

The baseline: measuring, allocating & calculating CO2 in European road transport (1 of 4).

Challenging questions included can innovative solutions for CO2 reduction be reflected in our existing CO2 frameworks?  How detailed and specific should insight in our CO2 footprints be, to work on stepwise improvements?  Are we likely to end up with a single CO₂ accounting standard we should follow, or multiple options?  What tools / principles should a shipper aim to use to get set up for understanding, measuring & communicating CO₂?  Can progress be incremental or does it have to be a “big bang” solution?  What CO₂ statistic will get my executive Board’s attention? How do I find & measure that statistic?
