Sustainability plays an important role for us also in transport logistics because the combustion of fuel produces CO2 emissions. LEDVANCE records these CO2 emissions so that they can be minimized by making the most efficient use of transport facilities. On the one hand, this improves transparency and meets the demand for uniform data and benchmarks. On the other hand, it would be impossible to optimize operations without relevant data. A CO2 balance in transport logistics also serves as an instrument for internal management and as a basis for decisions on how to improve the existing management systems
EN 16258 covers the certification of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the transport industry. Its aim is to provide a uniform methodology for calculating and declaring the GHG emissions of transport services. This is achieved by presenting GHG activities and measures to optimize the energy consumption of transport services.
In view of the above, we place requirements on our partners to achieve continual reductions in CO2 emissions on all transport facilities. CO2 emissions are to be reduced through the use of state-of-the-art transport facilities and technology, cargo space optimization, route optimization, speed adjustments and a number of other measures. The measures will be internally evaluated and verified through the provision of monthly emission reports to EN 16258.
