Reducing emissions in transport and logistics
Logistics is the vital link between raw material production, manufacturing, retailers and customers. However, the movement of high volumes of goods presents a significant climate impact. Transportation has been a long-standing focus of customer concerns over climate, with ‘food miles’ being top of the agenda in the early 2000s. This category is about actions taken by retailers to reduce emissions from their logistics operations and/or as part of the transition to net zero logistics. For example, implementing fuel efficient best practices for drivers, investing in low/zero carbon vehicles, or using low carbon fuels.
