As we look to a new sustainable future it is critical that global supply chains commit to structural change. The Logistics & Supply Chain Sustainability Report 2021, in partnership with the Foundation for Future Supply Chain examines the complexities of achieving net zero emissions by 2050, and the role global supply chains will play in this challenge.

The report addresses the impact of Covid-19 on the race to decarbonise, how shippers are trying to become greener and the additional measures required to improve logistics efficiency. The report examines the current impact of road, air and sea freight on environmental targets, and the measures each market must adopt in order to reach net zero.

It is currently very unclear how best to reduce emissions and adopt sustainable and efficient logistics networks. There are political constraints, with large differences in the approach of different nations. There are also market specific challenges, such as phasing out diesel and petrol trucks and reducing freight demand. The report examines each of these challenges and sets out potential strategies for each market.

The report also contains a breakdown of the findings of the Ti and Foundation for Future Supply Chain’s 2021 Sustainability survey. The survey addresses current industry attitudes towards net-zero targets, motivating factors for environmental initiatives and the progress already made with regards to emissions measurements.

Finally, the report contains comparative environmental profiles for leading logistics providers.

Key questions the report asks and answers:

  • Can net-zero targets really be achieved? 
  • What role will global supply chains play in the race to net-zero? 
  • Sustainability is increasingly taking a central position in corporate agendas, but is the industry moving fast enough?
  • Are shippers ready to pay to offset CO2 emissions? 
  • What is the true impact of shipping on the environment?
  • Which sustainability strategies are leading logistics players adopting? And what must they do to keep up with the race to net-zero?
  • How much progress has been made in the european road freight market with regards to net-zero targets?
  • What proportion of companies measure the impact of its business on the environment?
  • What impact has Covid-19 had on environmental initiatives?
  • Is it feasible to ban the sale of diesel engine trucks by 2040?

Exclusive highlights
  • The logistics industry will need root-and-branch transformation over the next ten years if climate change targets are to be met

  • In order to meet net-zero targets, the freight industry must adopt the so-called ‘avoid-shift-improve’ strategy
  • There are currently no existing alternative fuels that can rival diesel engines
  • Global transport emissions increased by less than 0.5% in 2019
  • Shipping lines emissions data declined 3.1% and 4.4% on average between 2018 and 2020 respectively
