Freight GHG Calculator
Transportation sector accounts for nearly 14% of India’s total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and freight transport accounts for over 40% of final energy use in the transport sector. The GHG emissions from the freight transport sector are growing at an alarming rate and urgent action is needed to deliver on India’s NDC commitments and achieving Net-ero emissions by 2070.
The Freight GreenhouseGas (GHG) Calculator is developed to create awareness and promote sustainability in the freight transport planning process by shifting towards low-carbon modes of transport. It is a simple and easy-to-use tool for calculating and comparing total cost of transportation and GHG emissions between various modes of transport for a fixed Origin-Destination Pair.
This calculator aims to induce a behavioural change amongst users towards sustainable choices by supporting them to make an informed decision based on financial and environmental cost estimates. It will be useful for both public and private sector enterprises to full fill the objective of green and sustainable logistics in India.Freight GHG Calculator Report
