Green logistics

Green logistics stands for environmentally friendly transportation and delivery methods. As freight accounts for 40% of transport emissions there is an urgency to decarbonize road transport, in particular in cities.

Green logistics and sustainable transport solutions need more than a coat of paint.

For your green logistics and transport management, we use a scientific approach and develop measurable targets, and measures that demonstrably pay off.

What is green logistics?

Green logistics is a sustainable approach that focuses on reducing the environmental impact of all stages of a logistics process, from sourcing raw materials to delivering finished products to customers. The goal of green logistics is to minimize waste, reduce emissions, and increase energy efficiency while maintaining the same level of quality and service as traditional logistics methods. For companies, green logistics becomes highly relevant in terms of their Supply Chain Management and Corporate Social Responsibility. But a mobility strategy, regional logistics and a sustainable infrastructure are also issues that cities and regions need to address, because transport decarbonization mostly relies on common solutions. 

Why is green logistics important?

Reducing freight and logistics emissions along the value chain is essential for businesses to deliver their services. As businesses face a changing technological and regulatory landscape with uncertainty about the viability of solutions, we work with the public and private sectors on sustainable logistics concepts for businesses, cities, and regions. 


These concepts include fleet transition and emission pathways based on industry, scientific, technological, and regulatory analyses, implementation roadmaps with measures to avoid, shift, and improve trips, and GHG accounting and profitability calculations.

How your business can benefit from sustainable logistics

A business can benefit from sustainable logistics in several ways, from reputational advantages to a cost-saving and highly efficient supply chain.

Start the change process to become a green business

Sustainable logistics practices can help your company to establish itself as a green business, which can improve its reputation and increase customer loyalty. Science-based emission targets and climate strategies, covering your logistics and transport management, are a good start to demonstrate your commitment to sustainability.

Have your supply chain risk management in place

By adopting green supply chain management, a business can reduce its exposure to supply chain risks. Those risks can be associated with environmental issues, such as natural disasters, resource depletion, and government regulations. If your supply chain strategy covers green logistics solutions, you are one step ahead.

Establish sustainable practices and become future-fit

Implementing sustainable logistics practices, such as using alternative fuels, reducing packaging waste, and optimizing transportation routes, can reduce a business' environmental impact. Environmental protection measures and efforts to decarbonize transportation activities are also taken into account in ESG ratings.

The right strategy is an individual matter in the case of green logistics. Nevertheless, there are aspects that help you to reach the goals to noticeably reduce your transportation emissions. With our clients we usually follow these steps:


  1. Kick-off of the project: We align the objectives and the scope with you and define the team which will be responsible. We also screen technological, regulatory and economic drivers.
  2. Analysis phase: We analyze your transport and company data and calculate emissions.
  3. Set objectives: We analyze decarbonization and technology pathways and set fields of action, strategic qualities, and GHG reduction potential (KPIs).​
  4. Solutions: We develop measures for transport decarbonization (incl. feasibility) and discuss collaborative approaches with suppliers and pilot projects.​
  5. Concept: We prioritize measures, set up a roadmap (costs, benefits, responsibilities, etc.) and define the use of carbon offsets.​
  6. Implementation: We help you to integrate the measures into a roadmap, adopt policies and support the communication, monitoring and verification.

Want to know how we can support your business in terms of its green logistics and decarbonization strategy that lead to reliable results? Don’t hesitate to contact us.

Ensuring a green supply chain involves implementing sustainability practices throughout the entire supply chain process, from the sourcing of raw materials to the final delivery of the product to the customer. Due to CSRD and other regulations, the supply chain is increasingly becoming the focus of regulatory attention. This significantly expands the scope of responsibility for companies. Our experience shows that sustainability in the supply chain, while complex, can produce remarkable results. The best thing you can do is to get this work started early enough.
