How we get around, and its effect on the planet.

Over the last three weeks, I have written articles on humans’ effect on the planet. The articles included how we plug into electricity, our methods for making and growing things. The two remaining activities that are main contributors include how we get around and how we keep cool and stay warm.

Transportation activities (aviation, rail, shipping, heavy and light trucking) are responsible for approximately 17% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Based on projected emissions, full decarbonization of heavy-duty transportation by 2030 would cost more than $1 trillion, assuming the technology exists to make it happen. The cost will increase by $400 billion by 2050. Considering the long asset cycles in transportation and logistics (T&L), players must start taking action. Indeed, the industry is experiencing mounting pressure from customers, employees, regulators, and investors to act on emissions.

“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well if one has not dined well.”


A sustainable T&L company gains access to new markets and customer segments. Many T&L customers now ask for emissions data as part of their request for tenders. Customers’ willingness to pay more for sustainable transportation and services has enabled companies with a proven reputation for providing climate-friendly transportation to charge premium prices. Research shows that 70% of end-consumers are willing to pay a 5% premium for green products, resulting in increased green offerings throughout the industry. Many sustainable companies’ employees are more motivated and engaged in their work, enhancing their effectiveness.
Companies can achieve significant cost reductions relating to fuel and utilities, including fleet optimization, by investing in more sustainable operations. Firms with a sustainable brand also incur lower costs to acquire and retain high-caliber employees many job applicants say that they consider a company’s sustainability when evaluating job offers. When on the job, employees’ have greater satisfaction, and engagement boosts their productivity. Moreover, these companies gain preferential access to attractive financing and funding linked to sustainability metrics, reducing the cost of debt. Additionally, some banks have incorporated sustainability standards into the loan approval process.

By investing in a sustainable brand and improving operational resilience, companies reduce strategic and operational risks. Moreover, by communicating to investors about their climate initiatives, they strengthen expectations for growth and profitability and boost the confidence in their management practices.
