It’s safe to say that modern society is more conscious of humanity’s impact on the environment than ever before. Thanks to new technological advancements and widespread information about our planet, we’re seeing individuals, businesses and Governments alike coming together to tackle the global climate crisis in a number of different ways.
And since the Paris Agreement was signed by 194 United Nations in 2016 pledging to limit the Earth’s warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius, every single aspect of civilisation has come under the microscope to find sustainability-focused improvements. This, of course, includes everything across the full spectrum of global logistics – highlighting vast opportunities for both the industry and the environment.
From logistics to green logistics
Logistics service providers are now recognising how they can play a critical role in shaping a decarbonised future, but how far along are European companies on their journey to adopting more sustainable supply chains and reaping the benefits?
This report is the product of a Maersk-owned survey of 1,264 businesses in Europe, setting out to establish:
- How much of a priority sustainable logistics is to European companies and how it enables business growth
- Whether the higher base price of more sustainable logistics is accepted during times of economic uncertainty
- How much pressure companies are feeling to be more sustainable from the modern-day consumer
- The value of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions visibility across supply chains
- Which direction more sustainable logistics is heading across all transport modes
