By creating a Green Freight Label certification and renewal process, Green Freight Asia helps companies understand where they stand with their sustainability agenda and acquire recognition for their green efforts.
We facilitate awareness building, education, and best practice exchange to help companies understand practical ways to lower fuel consumption, reduce CO2e emissions, and improve air quality.
Green Freight Asia helps:
- Lower fuel consumption across Asia-Pacific sourced freight movements
- Reduce shipping costs across the entire supply chain
- Reduce CO2e emissions and air pollution from these movements
Working towards green freight has a sound business case. In addition, Asia's current policy and business landscape also makes it vital for companies to pursue and achieve a more sustainable supply chain:
Leading industry players such as DHL, IKEA, UPS, HP, Lenovo and Infineon, display extensive accountability in reducing carbon emissions by creating and facilitating collaborative platforms to support green freight players.
With all Asian countries committed to the Paris Agreement and up to 40% of National Determined Contributions related to freight and logistics, increasing regulation on the sector can be expected.
GLOBAL CONCERTED EFFORT
Asian countries are striving for a sustainable future through high-level commitments to the UN Sustainability Development Goals.
RISE OF ETHICAL CONSUMERS
Conscious consumption is growing in Asia. Environmental responsibility of firms is an important factor in “ethical buying” behaviour of Asian consumers.
