HMM Introduces Supply Chain Carbon Calculator
With customers becoming ever more eco-conscious, and regulatory regimes such as the EU Emissions Trading System looming large over the shipping industry, HMM, a major South Korean shipping company, has introduced a ‘supply chain carbon calculator’.
The new digital platform will allow HMM customers to track the total greenhouse gas emissions generated from Place of Receipt to Place of Delivery.
The carbon calculator follows an industry-accredited methodology for inland and ocean transportation. The ocean-leg emissions employ the ‘Clean Cargo’ methodology, whilst inland transport legs are calculated in line with the ‘Global Logistics Emission Council (GLEC) framework.
The calculator will also allow customers to see emissions in terms of either Well-to-Wake (WTW) or Tank to Wake (TTW). Further, estimated emissions can be noted on the bill of lading, and certificates issued based on actual transport data.
A HMM official commented on the new calculator, saying that, “There has been a growing interest in sustainability and green transportation solutions, accelerating the need for reducing emissions. We will continue to seek a better way to ensure full visibility of tracking carbon footprints, thereby making significant headway in reaching carbon neutrality”.
The HMM Supply Chain Carbon Calculator can be accessed here.
