Transport accounts for nearly a quarter of carbon emissions and is the largest driver for air pollution in cities. To transition to a low carbon economy, the transport sector must play a key role. The sector itself is caught between where it needs to be and what is technologically possible and available. To drive innovation and change in this space regulations such as the Ultra-Low Emission Zones and the diesel ban are coming into force. For many businesses this will require a significant amount of effort and investment.
In addition to these requirements, logistics providers are under increasing pressure to respond to customers’ requests to provide environmental data to demonstrate the action that they are taking. As businesses increasingly sell goods online third-party logistics make up a significant and growing proportion of their indirect emissions and thus become critical to sustainability strategies and targets. Whether you own your infrastructure or use the transport infrastructure of others, being able to report on your emissions and how are you are transitioning to low carbon transport is becoming a licence to operate.

I was impressed with the thoroughness and level of detail that our data set was analysed in. Presenting an extensive data set in an easy to use format was of great value in communicating the outcome of the work internally, and prioritising areas of the supply chain for future action.

Avieco has been the preferred environmental consultant since the beginning of our journey to become a sustainable company. Dentsu Aegis has worked with Avieco’s experts on various areas, such as carbon footprint reporting and assurance support, and recently also advised us how to switch our global network to renewable electricity. The team’s expertise on environmental sustainability is impressive, and the work delivered is always of highest standard.
Lars Holm, Global Senior Manager CSR, Dentsu Aegis Network
Avieco informatively led us through the processes needed to reduce our carbon footprint. With their clear and concise advice we have been able to effectively reduce our energy and waste levels. Avieco made the complex notion of energy efficiency into a manageable and achievable reality
Nigel Pink, Group Engineering Manager, Dominos UK & Ireland Ltd
Avieco delivered exactly the workshop we needed to get our sustainability team and regional leads on the same page when it comes to ‘market-based’ reporting. It’s a challenging area to tackle for a global business – particularly when we operate in a number of markets where there is little or no choice in terms of energy purchasing. Avieco has given us the knowledge and tools to ensure we get our disclosures right – they really exceeded my expectations for what we could achieve in one afternoon!
Dr Julia Rowe, Group Sustainability Advisor, Johnson Matthey
We get that change is not easy. But we must be brave, challenge old ways, set new habits, embrace new thinking.
