Logistics is a leading source of carbon. Nearly 6 percent of the greenhouse gases generated by humans come from the flow of products to consumers.
Reducing these emissions takes more than setting goals; it requires clear, measurable initiatives that hit sustainability targets while delivering lower costs and higher service levels.
Three companies, Boise Inc., Caterpillar Inc., and Ocean Spray, in collaboration with the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) and the MIT Center for Transportation (MIT CTL), have completed carbon-reduction projects that meet these goals. The results are now available in three compelling case studies.
MIT CTL invites you to hear these stories by attending our next webinar, Delivering Green: Three Case Studies in Carbon-Efficient Logistics, on April 17th, 2013, at 1pm EST, the third event in MIT CTL’s Advances in Supply Chain webinar series. Learn how these companies slowed the growth of logistics-related emissions through mode shifting, load consolidation, and network redesign — and captured cost savings as well as service improvements.
Dr. Edgar Blanco, MIT CTL, will be joined by EDF’s Jason Mathers, Ross Corthell from Boise, Kristine Young from Ocean Spray, and Zena Onstott from Caterpillar to share their insights from these projects.
