LCRS members leading emissions reduction drive19 May 2015

LCRS (Logistics Carbon Reduction Scheme) members are cutting carbon emissions faster tham the rest of the logistics industry, but not without some challenges, according to the FTA Logistics Carbon Review 2015.

Released at the FTA's (Freight Transport Association) annual Logistics Carbon Reduction conference last week, the report's fifth annual results show that scheme members have achieved CO2e emissions between 2005 and 2013.

"LCRS members are making significantly better progress in reducing emissions when compared to industry as a whole," comments Rachael Dillon, FTA climate change policy manager.

"They are likely to be more engaged in improving fuel efficiency and reducing carbon within their fleet operations," she adds – explaining that LCRS aggregates fuel usage and business activity data to establish a carbon footprint for the whole scheme.

The Review also outlines how LCRS is making it easier for members to comply with the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) – which requires energy audits to be carried out for transport and buildings.

The report, which was presented at the LCRS Carbon Conference in Birmingham last week, also features case studies from DHL Supply Chain, Sainsbury's and Turners (Soham).
