EcoTransIT World Initiative

The EcoTransIT World Initiative (EWI) has set itself the goal of continuously developing and harmonizing the methodology for determining emissions in the global transport sector. The ETW calculation tool is to be established as a globally recognized tool.

Every user of the ETW Business Solutions (Licensee) is invited to participate in the EWI.

„In 2012, we decided to join EcoTransIT World Initiative and to interface our Transport Management Systems with its business solution. Since then, we provide our customers with emissions calculations based on detailed operational data and in line with national and international standards.“

„Decarbonization starts with having access to a reliable carbon footprint. It needs to be detailed enough to reflect your logistics decisions and it needs to be in line with all the key standards and frameworks. What I like best is that the engine is continuously developed further leveraging the expertise of its members.“
