The Green Freight Journey is a five-step framework for freight optimization projects. In this blog series, EDF is taking a brief look at each step of the Journey.
We’ve all heard the saying, “Life’s a journey, not the destination.” Your Green Freight efforts are no exception.
The Green Freight Journey is about setting long-term goals and continuously learning. Each time you reach a “destination,” remember to celebrate your success and share your learnings broadly within your organization and network.
Once you’ve acknowledged your success, challenge your department to take on new and more complex projects. As emissions from global goods movement continue to increase, the changes you make will make a difference and influence others to do the same.
To learn more about the Green Freight Journey, watch our recorded webinar, where we go into more detail about the Green Freight Journey framework, review real-world case examples and highlight tools EDF is making available to help companies progress on their journey.
During the webinar, participants will:
- Be introduced to the steps of a Green Freight Journey and receive tips for success on each;
- Hear real-world examples of companies that have cut emissions and costs by optimizing freight moves;
- Review existing tools, including a green freight benchmarking survey and the EDF Green Freight Handbook; and
- Learn how an EDF Climate Corps fellow helped Ocean Spray Cranberries identify new green freight opportunities
