Progress Being Made on Standardisation of Carbon Emission Measurements

Challenges remain in the industry for finding a common standard to measure carbon emissions

Continuing the second session of the TLME Future-Proof Technologies Conference held recently in Dubai, conference moderator Lars Jensen asked Olivier Laurent, Regional Head of Business Development, DHL Global Forwarding MEA, if he foresaw a situation in the future where the industry could collaborate on making a global standard in measuring the carbon footprint of ports and terminals?

Mr Laurent said that currently there wasn’t a single repository of emissions data using the same criteria so collaboration was required by the industry to “share one single source of truth”. Presently, industry stakeholders were using different parameters to conduct their analysis.

However, added Mr Laurent, compared to 10 years ago, today service providers were at least starting to measure their carbon emissions so he was optimistic that the future would see enhanced collaboration and alignment between different stakeholders in the ports and shipping industry.
