CO2 calculation in logistics
GS1 Switzerland and the Swiss Commercial Vehicle Association ASTAG continue to advocate with great conviction for an environmentally and climate-friendly design of transport and logistics.
With the project and the founding of the "Fair Carbon Player" working group, the starting signal has been given to develop a standardised and central basis for CO2 calculation and for operational use together with the members. By the end of 2022, the industry should already have a solution with which the CO2 emissions of a shipment can be calculated and reported in a standardised manner.
The key to success is innovation, voluntarism and industry-wide standards. In order to make the footprint of different service providers comparable for the customer, the calculation of CO2 emissions must be standardised.
