Logistics operators on track to beat carbon reduction target27 May 2014

The logistics sector is on track to meet its carbon reduction target in 2014, one year earlier than anticipated, according to projections from the Logistics Carbon Reduction Scheme (LCRS).

Latest actual data from the LCRS – run by the Freight Transport Association (FTA) – revealed a drop of 3.4% in 2011-12 and demonstrates that the industry's efforts are contributing to national carbon and greenhouse gas reduction targets.

The target reduction of 8% by 2015 versus the 2010 baseline figure is likely to be achieved by the end of this year, says the FTA.

The LCRS currently has 95 members, with a total of 70,000 commercial vehicles. The scheme is free to join and operator data remains confidential.

"It is important that the LCRS continues to grow in membership so that we can demonstrate the progress the whole industry is making," says Rachael Dillon, FTA's climate change policy manager.

"I would urge operators to join this free-of-charge scheme to make their contribution known."
