Hydrogen Europe Research feedback: Count your transport emissions – 'COUNTEMISSIONS EU’
- Policy Working Group
Hydrogen Europe Research welcomes the European Commission’s initiative to tackle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions accounting from the transport of goods, products, commodities, etc. The emissions have indeed been consistently growing in the past thirty years. To raise awareness and to incentivise market actors to develop cleaner transportation modes, data on the environmental impact of transport and logistics (storage, cooling, loading/unloading, consignment, etc.) must be made available. Therefore, developing a valid, scientifically solid and commonly accepted framework for calculating GHG emissions of transport is a first step to achieve this.
