Consultation: Harmonized transport carbon footprinting measures

Energee-Watch

Stakeholders consultation on sustainable transport: promoting the development of harmonised carbon footprinting measures for both freight and passenger transport services in Europe.

Consultation period: 21/03/2014 – 13/06/2014

Background

Carbon footprinting is a method to generate data about the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of transport operations on an aggregated level of a company, or more detailed, on the level of a trip and service, like the delivery of a parcel. Many initiatives, both at the EU and global level, have been deployed for identifying carbon footprints of transport services. Also several tools are available for comparing various transport modes on the GHG emissions. However, at the moment there exists no universally accepted definition of the concept of carbon footprint. Existing methodologies and tools for measuring the carbon footprint show manifold divergences and inconsistencies between them.

The context of the consultation is explained in more detail in the background document.

Aim of this questionnaire

The consultation is aimed to map the opinions of stakeholders across the EU regarding harmonisation of carbon footprinting at the service level. The questionnaire has 53 (multiple choice and open) questions and will take approximately 30 minutes to answer.
