On the 18th of November of 2015 the EcoTransIT Initiative invited to its 4th EcoTransIT World stakeholder workshop at Gothenburg in Sweden.

About 40 participants from all parts of the sector – logistics companies, shippers, forwarders, air, ocean and land carriers, scientific and non-governmental organisations – attended the conference. Beside the presentation of the EcoTransIT World Initiative and its broadly used emission calculator EcoTransIT World, experts of different organizations discussed current industry driven initiatives such as GLEC (Global Logistics Emission Council) or CCWG (Clean Cargo Working Group) and the need of a harmonized calculation model.

Among the speakers Alan McKinnon (Kuehne University) and Rachel Muncrief (Climate and Clean Air Coalition) gave an overview of developments in the transport industry which aim at emission reduction and significant contributions to climate protection.

The afternoon break-out sessions allowed in-depth discussions on emission methodologies and tool requirements. The workshop participants, subject matter experts from the transport and environmental industry, created a lively atmosphere with interesting talks and contributions.

2nd EcoTransIT World Stakeholder Workshop 18 April at Hapag-Lloyd HQ

The EcoTransIT consortium presented new Business Solutions of its multimodal emissions calculator and welcomed Hapag-Lloyd and Gebrueder Weiss as new partners.

Hosted by Hapag-Lloyd, the latest member of the consortium, the 2nd EcoTransIT World stakeholder workshop took place in Hamburg on April 18, 2012.

68 attendees from different business sectors, shippers, carriers and logistics service providers, discussed methodological and business approaches to calculate greenhouse gas emissions in the transport industry. Key note speeches of EU Commission DG Move and World Economic Forum (WEF) contributed the political and business perspective to this discussion. The French Environment and Energy Management Agency (ADEME) explained the basic requirements of the upcoming European standard prEN 16258 on transport emission calculation to be executed by the end of 2012.

With contributions of the three industry initiatives Green Freight Europe (GFE), Clean Cargo Working group (CCWG) and NTM the workshop opened the floor to a new platform of networking and exchanging experience – a platform across companies and modes searching for alignment of data and methodologies.

All together there was a unanimous spirit to acknowledge recent tool developments and alignment efforts thereto by all industry stakeholders. Namely the examples of company-customized use of EcoTransIT Business Solutions, as presented by the latest EcoTransIT consortium members Hapag-Lloyd and Gebrueder Weiss, were appreciated a lot. Thus the workshop was a strong signal to the whole sector to join in this process, make use of available solutions and actively contribute with own experience to the further alignment process.
