Calculator

Informing

CarbonCare shows how CO2 emissions from logistics chains can be calculated and how these pollutant emissions can be reduced.

more

Calculating

CarbonCare calculates greenhouse gas values and makes it possible to compare emissions between different means of transport.

more

Certifying

CarbonCare regularly provides detailed emissions data and generates an annual emission certificate (non-tradable) for licensed companies.

more

Compensating

CarbonCare offers access to the various compensation projects of our business partners.

Combating Climate Change

According to estimates, the transport and logistics sector contributes up to 24% of global CO2 emissions. This results in a special responsibility in the fight against climate change (MIT 2018; Transport Emission 2018, PWC 2009).

Standards

Implementation of the EU standard EN16258

Various industry associations have developed standards and agreements for the calculation of emissions. However, some of these standards only cover individual modes of transport, are limited to one continent, or do not include all elements of the global logistics chain. There is therefore no actual global standard. On the other hand, the EU, together with neighbouring states, has agreed on a reasonable and practicable basis by formulating the EU standard "EN16258".

Methodology

Starting Signal for taking Measures

Knowledge about CO2 emissions is not only the first step towards an altered state of consciousness, but also the starting signal for taking measures. This promotes trust among individuals within companies and among external customers. It is to be expected that politicians will introduce further requirements in this area in the near future.

Methodology

Why CarbonCare?

  • CarbonCare is the latest and most comprehensive global emissions calculator
  • It is based on the European standard EN16258 and was developed with various partners over 5 years.
  • Over 3.5 million effective and realistic measured values are the basis for calculations.
  • The calculator comprehensively and globally includes all transport modes as well as the handling of goods in terminals and warehouses.
  • The results are reported as TTW (Tank-to-Wheel) CO2 and CO2 equivalents as well as WTW (Well-to-Wheel) CO2 equivalents.
  • The regularly updated data guarantee a realistic calculation
  • In addition to the calculation of pollutants, our service also enables the preparation of an annual emissions balance as well as the compensation of emissions and their data storage.

Validated by the foundation «myclimate»

The standards, calculation methods and emission factors used in the pollutant calculator are based on the generally recognised EU standard EN16258. Conformity with this standard and the accuracy of the calculated values regarding distances and routes, as well as the correct application of the emission factors for the various modes of transport were analysed and validated by specialists from myclimate.
