Developing a standardized measure for calculating transport emissions
In this video, Verena EHRLER (Senior Professor of Practice) speaks about her work on the on the calculation of greenhouse gas emissions for transport.
According to this expert, international freight transport is expected to more than double by 2050. To minimize greenhouse gas emissions from transport, she explains that it is important to “measure what we are doing”. “What’s more, you can only really compare emissions for different transport approaches if you have a standardized or normed measure that stakeholders can use.”
She explains how she has been involved in a project to develop such a measure, in the form of a standardized norm, ISO 14083.
