Environmental Defense Fund has collaborated with facilities and logistics managers across industries for the past three years, seeing first-hand the strategies that have been most successful in reducing emissions and improving efficiencies.
EDF has packaged those strategies into a series of free, user-friendly resources to help your company design and launch its own Green Freight projects.
The case for Green Freight
Freight movement accounts for 16% of all corporate greenhouse gas emissions, making it one of the largest carbon footprint contributors. The emissions come directly from trucks, trains, ships and planes that carry goods. Companies have the power and financial incentive to reduce their environmental impact from freight. By employing smarter logistics strategies, they can operate more efficiently and affordably.
