On 30th March of 2011, the online calculator EcoTransIT World received the 11th Logistics Innovations Awards during the International Trade Show Logistics Solutions in Paris. EcoTransIT has been selected among 12 projects entered for the competition under the category “Most innovative transport and logistics solution supporting sustainability”.

The jury, composed of eight experts from the supply chain management and sustainable development sectors, appreciated the innovative tool as well as its organization:

  • Innovative product: The free online access to the tool and specific features to realize mass calculation services consequently adapted to the needs of shippers and carriers
  • Innovative methodology: An exhaustive methodology considering each modal specificity combined with worldwide coverage of multidmodal networks
  • Innovative structure: A synergetic partnership of various international logistics actors and specialists working all together to develop and disseminate a common eco-calculator

EcoTransIT’s methodology for calculating the environmental impacts has been developed by independent scientific institutions: The Institute for Energy and Environmental Research (IFEU), the Institute for Applied Ecology and the Institute of Transport, Railway Construction and Operation (IVE). In coordination with the International Union of Railways (UIC), the European network of seven railway companies and a logistics company guarantees the periodical updating of data and enriches the partner frame of the project.

This award is recognition for twelve years of continuous work, a tribute to the strong engagement of all partners to create a best practice standard of carbon accounting in the freight and logistics sector. With EcoTransIT World the consortium actually offers version no. 4 of the tool.

First EcoTransIT Stakeholder Workshop in Paris

On 5th of October of 2010 the 1st EcoTransIT Stakeholder Workshop took place in Paris. More than 100 participants representing the whole transport sector – logistics companies, shippers, forwarders, air, ocean and land carriers, scientific and non-governmental organisations – attended the meeting. They actively shared the discussion on needs and benefits of a reliable and easy-to-use carbon calculator for global supply chains. Keynote speeches from United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), European Environment Agency (EEA) and the EU project SuperGREEN welcomed the EcoTransIT initiative and highlighted their views on carbon footprinting as steps towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions. In the end it was common sense to continue the dialogue and intensify cooperation.
