60% of supply chain executives are measuring their transportation and logistics emissions according to New 'Green Transportation & Logistics North American 2008 Report'

eyefortransport recently surveyed over 500 North American supply chain executives to establish what was driving companies to green their transportation and logistics. The resulting 'Green Transportation & Logistics North American 2008 Report' revealed that financial and public relations ROI means that green issues are fast becoming the No.1 priority for companies of all sizes. And, for the 2008 edition, we've taken a closer look at the specific environmental logistics programs companies are setting-up, what software they're investing in, what the drivers for measuring their carbon footprint is, where they see ROI, and how they're avoiding greenwashing.

With up to 75% of a company's carbon footprint coming from transportation and logistics, the focus of supply chain greening has shifted towards this area, where the opportunity to make the biggest difference exists. With this in mind, eyefortransport asked respondents to pinpoint what they were doing to green their transportation and logistics, and what effects these initiatives have had.

The timely industry report that resulted revealed that only 2% of respondents designate green issues as unimportant - down from 6% a year ago. The vast majority of respondents, 85%, divulged that over the next three years green issues will become more important to their transport and logistics processes. An amazing 9% identified green issues as their No.1 priority over the next three years, while less than 1% expects a lessening of importance.
