The logistics industry must achieve zero emissions. If we continue to burn the 4 billion tonnes of crude oil we go through every year, then all known oil deposits will be gone by 2050.
One of our writers, Rhys Rodriguez, recently wrote an in depth article on how the shipping industry is planning to combat climate change, introduce new was to use fuel and become a zero emission industry
Carbon emissions are destructive to the Earth, and the supply chain is partly accountable for releasing them. The global logistics industry contributes a combined 4% of the world’s carbon emissions a year, yet was not formally cited in the Paris Agreement (PA) on climate change. Instead, the PA tasked the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation) and the IMO (International Maritime Organisation)to regulate in accordance with the 2°C by 2020 target.
Rachel Finch from the design and marketing team has put together an infographic of the key points raised by Rhys on how the industry is planning to change, grow and become greener.
