GreenFreight Europe aims to be recognized as the
leading independent voluntary program for improving environmental
performance of road freight transport in Europe.
The program drives reductions of carbon emissions by:
- Establishing a platform for monitoring and reporting of carbon
emissions, to assist in the procurement of transportation services
and based on existing standards
- Promoting collaboration between carriers and shippers in
driving improvement actions and monitoring progress
- Establishing a certification system to reward shippers and
carriers who fully participate in the program.
It is also the platform for companies to share best practices,
promote innovations and communicate sustainability improvements on
European road freight.
Furthermore, GreenFreight Europe fosters cooperation with other
related initiatives, programs and working groups globally.
GreenFreight Europe aims to work closely with European politics
and other relevant stakeholders. First focus will be on road
transport. In a next phase other modalities and multi-modal
operations might be added to the program.
