WP3 - Development

Demonstration of the COFRET methodology for calculating the carbon footprint from freight transport

Demonstration of the implemented methodology for measuring the carbon footprint at a micro level, such as a single supply chain, or at a macro level, such as a transport sector. The target group for the demonstration are representatives of individual freight shippers and carriers.

The objective of WP3 is to compile a technically harmonised methodology for the calculation of CO2 emissions. To reach this goal, we will use (the knowledge behind) existing CO2 calculation tools and methodologies in order to create a harmonised methodology. We will involve the developers of existing tools and methodologies through a workshop. The result of this WP is the definition of framework of and requirements towards development of prototype. 

The first two deliverables from workpackage 3 are now publicly available for download here
