Logistics Generates 5 Percent of World's CO2 Emissions

Logistics activities contribute roughly five percent of the 50,000 megatons of carbon dioxide emissions generated annually by all human activity, according to a World Economic Forum report.
Billed as the first research effort of its kind, the report readied by the Geneva-based non-profit with support from the global consulting giant Accenture, quantifies and ranks opportunities to reduce supply chain carbon intensity.
The report, Supply Chain Decarbonization, also examines the role that the logistics and transport sector plays in reducing emissions, both in its own operations and by swaying shippers and buyers to make vital supply chain improvements.
