Standard Forwarding, a US “less than truckload” (LTL) forwarder and subsidiary of DHL Freight, is offering CO2 emission reports for customer’s shipments.
The CO2 emissions are calculated “following principles from internationally recognized standards, such as the Greenhouse Gas Protocol from the World Resources Institute, and the CO2 and reporting norms for transport shipments method negotiated by the World Economic Forum,” the company says.
Customers can request a monthly, quarterly or yearly report detailing their carbon footprint for each route during the requested time period.
Customers can choose to neutralise their emissions by buying into various climate protection projects around the world, verified by Société Générale de Surveillance (SGS).
“We are proud to be at the cutting-edge of environmental responsibility for an LTL carrier,” says John Ward, president of Standard Forwarding.
