EWI and NTM into cooperation

EcoTransIT World Initiative (EWI) and Network for Transport Measures (NTM) have entered into a cooperation to create synergies in their methodological expertise on carbon accounting in the transport industry.

The top providers worldwide for transport emission calculation NTM (Network for Transport Measures) and EWI (EcoTransIT World Initiative) have entered into a cooperation with effect of August 12, 2014.

By this step the two initiatives exchange their decades of expertise and help industry and standardization bodies (CEN/ISO) to agree on a globally accepted standard in transport emission calculation.

“This new cooperation is a huge step forward for the benefit of the users of both approaches”, says EcoTransIT World tool provider Dr Alfons Radtke. As the tools play a leading role also because of their long-standing implementation and status in the market, synergies are to be expected.

“Ever since our start we have had a focus to help and stimulate environmental improvements for various transport services. One of our initiatives has been to provide environmental performance assessment platforms and tools, aiming to simplify a common communicative language between shippers and transport service providers. By this cooperation we pursue further market alignment that is needed for real environmental improvement”, says Magnus Swahn, Management Director at NTM.

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.
