An EY study shows electric cars aren’t a drain on tax revenue after all. Not only do EV owners pay more tax than petrol/diesel cars, there’s a 6X greater net benefit to the economy from reduced external costs of greenhouse gases, local air pollution and noise pollution.
As electric freight vans and trucks come into play, these net benefits will amplify across society.
But how can transporters and freight shippers measure and address the harm and costs they cause?
A unique solution is now available in Australia and New Zealand. The @TK’Blue Agency calculates the societal, environmental, and economic costs of each shipment at a granular level according to vehicle type, fuel, route, application and carrier. It precisely measures the costs to society of:
- toxic air pollution (cancer, asthma, etc – health treatment, lost productivity)
- congestion (lost productivity)
- noise (local amenity)
- accidents (health and property damage)
TK’Blue’s platform also provides the most accurate GHG footprint of a logistics network possible today. Companies with net-zero emissions goals can offset their real scope 3 transport emissions with confidence, unlike the rough estimates currently made for carbon neutral claims.
And even better, it gives you the tools and knowledge to systematically reduce these impacts in collaboration with your supply chain partners.
Trusted and independent, TK’Blue provides digital tools to help retailers and FMCG manufacturers calculate, report, and reduce transport emissions while improving the social and economic performance of their products.
