Why take action?

Prepare for a rapidly changing market

The logistics sector — particularly shipping and inland freight — is a critical part of the climate challenge, with a key role in the world’s most polluting sectors: transport and the global commodities market.

Logistics companies rely on the agricultural and extractive commodity industries for custom (transportation and trade) and supply (including fuel and materials for building vessels). As such, they're exposed to the commodity sector’s high risks of disruption in the transition to net-zero, as well as to the transport sector’s direct risks.

As commodity companies, traders, and financiers seek to tackle climate risks and decarbonize their supply chains, logistics companies need to offer greener services.

For the sake of a climate-safe future, and to competitively operate in an increasingly regulated market, logistics firms must tackle their carbon footprint and supply chain risks.

Carbon pricing and regulation

Costs of core freight operations are at risk of soaring with the rising price of carbon and spread of carbon regulation worldwide. Rapidly changing legislation means potential friction in logistics processes and legal risks for the unprepared.

Reporting and reputation

Customers, financial institutions, policymakers, and civil society are demanding transparency and action on emissions. Increasing media scrutiny brings major reputational risks, and more legislation is on the horizon (such as G7-backed mandatory disclosure.
