Reducing freight traffic's impact on the environment
Smart Freight Centre and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development have issued the smart freight procurement (SFP) guidelines, and BSR has introduced the sustainable freight procurement (SFP) framework.
These tools will enable organisations to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and air pollutants through their freight transport and logistics procurement. The SFP guidelines contain practical actions how GHG emission can be reduced.
The guidelines can be used to identify gaps and fully integrate climate action into their procurement processes. Transporting goods around the globe generates 8% of global CO2 emission. (ben)
