Achieve net-zero carbon now with Global Climate Initiatives

Australian business owners wondering about their impact on the climate and how they can reduce it can now take control of their Carbon Footprint using the digital tools of Global Climate Initiatives. Global Climate Initiatives (GCI), the Climate division of the European TK'Blue Agency, is a private initiative bringing together different economic and scientific players. It offers all types of businesses, of all sectors and sizes, online tools to calculate, reduce, and offset their carbon footprint, in full compliance with international standards. TK'Blue's local representative David Coleman recently became Australia's first GCI Accredited Expert to help companies and public organisations

MANAGE LOGISTICS EMISSIONS FOR COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE

Already a large source of greenhouse gas emissions, by 2050 goods transportation volumes are expected to triple and emissions double. For industries moving high volumes of raw materials into factories and finished products into sales and distribution channels, the size and complexity of their logistics networks make it difficult to measure environmental impacts. The freight task is near-totally dependent on oil and is typically outsourced to many service providers. ESG Metrics don't 'get' Transport Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) ratings don’t adequately capture supply chain impacts, so these transport activities can have material scope 3 emissions that go unnoticed. Beyond

Measure the net benefits of electric freight vehicles

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

Transport sector is a Carbon Laggard

Pre-coronavirus estimates had freight transport volumes tripling by 2050 with an associated business-as-usual doubling in greenhouse gas emissions from an industry that remains 99% dependent on oil for energy. ClimateWorks estimates that if all sectors commit to achieving a Paris 2 degrees warming pathway, by 2030 most sectors can reduce emissions by about half to two-thirds, except Transport which will remain at current levels. To reach Net Zero by 2050, Transport relies on proven technology for electrifying light vehicles reaching price parity with internal combustion engine cars by 2025 and emerging solutions for heavy transport across road, rail, marine and

Targeting transport emissions in your supply chain

So, you’re a large Retailer, Manufacturer or Resources company that moves a lot of freight and has publicly committed to reduce emissions in your value chain. Now what? Targets are a critical first step that precedes the real challenge: to measure, control and improve the impact of your transport activities on the environment and human health. It’s a daunting task to measure the environmental impacts of your global multimodal transport activities, with all shapes and sizes of trucks, vans, trains, planes, ships and warehouses, sometimes dedicated to your products and often shared with others. It’s long been a topic in
