Just an idea: do you take into account the secondary, tertiary, etc. effects??
I mean: for example in the case of an electrinic/hybrid car how much extra CO2 is needed to produce thhe double motor, or the battery, or what about extra acids and led, and the encironment, etc.
Or, how much extra water is used for the production of a CO2 poor thing??
I totally agree with this view.
This year I have been conducting interviews with dozens of cargo owners to analyse the potential for modal shift from road to co-modal transport.
The attitude I am getting is somehow different from what it was 3 or 4 years ago, when price was the only driver for change.
Most of the cargo owners indicate now that being able to promote a green supply chain can become a competitive advantage. And something that can be perceived as adding value to their products.
I seriously believe that there is a large scale emerging market for low-carbon, or at least less-carbon services
This is an important opportunity, following our presence at last year's ICT4EE conference. Please consider attending this event.
We are looking for a shipper/end-user who will make a short presentation about future challenges in the logistics sector from the perspective of a shipper/end-user. If you are interested feel free to contact me within the next days.
Very interesting report, it would have been nice to see an updated/expanded version of it including some of the advanced national projects we have identified in Logistics 4 Life wp1 and a larger group of experts as well as more information on the experts in the actual panel.
