Abstract

Rapidly growing population and the increasing demand for quality of life in emerging and developing countries are just two trends which will cause major challenges in future. Sustainable actions and a more efficient use of resources will increasingly be a key factor in growth and employment policies. In this context, the field of logistics offers considerable potential for optimization in terms of efficiency and resource conservation. This paper shows which requirements are imposed on procedures or methods to measure the efficiency based on greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) of logistics technologies and services and gives an evaluation of existing standards and guidelines.
