What is carbon reporting
You can use DSV’s reports to monitor your emissions from all the shipments we have undertaken for you. More and more companies include carbon reporting in their corporate social responsibility work and annual reports.
The reports also allow you to monitor changes to both the amount of CO2 emissions and the CO2 efficiency of your production.
If you set specific goals, such as reducing total emissions by a certain amount by a certain date or increasing efficiency by a certain percentage, our reports can help you monitor your progress and report back on a regular basis, for example in an annual report to your stakeholders.
Transport and its part in CO2 reporting
In general, most of our CO2 emissions come from gathering raw materials and producing goods. For the purposes of reporting, emissions are normally divided into three categories or scopes, with transport by DSV coming under the third category – other indirect emissions:
- Direct emissions
These are CO2 emissions from processes your company directly controls, such as manufacturing.
- Electricity indirect emissions
When you purchase and use electricity at your facilities, it causes emissions at the power plant. These are probably outside your company but you still control the amount of power you use directly.
- Other indirect emissions
There are emissions necessary for your business but outside your direct control. Transport by DSV is one such indirect emission. These emissions are probably not the major part of your whole CO2 footprint and are almost impossible to report on comprehensively, although your emissions from transport with DSV are an exception. Not only can you report accurately but you can also influence how much you emit by changing to more efficient transport modes or consolidating transports.
