According to the Sustainable Freight Buyers Alliance, freight transport accounts for 8% of global CO₂ emissions, with a predicted increase to 42% by 2050.

As part of the Paris Agreement, the aim is to maintain and keep greenhouse gases at 1.5 degrees and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 43% by 2030 and reach net zero emissions by 2050.

These targets will only be hit if the logistics industry as a whole support the transition to a more sustainable future.  Here at Good Logistics, we play our part by implementing sustainable practices across our business to help us reduce our own carbon footprint. We also want to help our customers achieve their sustainability goals, by ensuring we offer green-friendly freight options but also provide a service to allow them to offset their carbon emissions, whilst providing support for global climate action projects in developing countries.
