HMM announced the launch of the Supply Chain Carbon Calculator, which allows customers to enhance their carbon footprint visibility across the entire logistics journey.
This new digital platform provides customers with analytical data on total GHG emissions generated from Place of Receipt to Place of Delivery, including door locations. With this calculator, customers can better manage their emissions for all container flows and choose the most eco-friendly mode of transport.
HMM’s Supply Chain Carbon Calculator follows an industry-accredited methodology for inland and ocean transportation. The ocean-leg emissions have employed the Clean Cargo methodology, which provides a set of industry average emission factors for maritime container transport per trade lane. For inland transport, emissions are calculated in line with the Global Logistics Emission Council(GLEC) framework, a globally recognized methodology for reporting logistics GHG footprint.
With the Supply Chain Carbon Calculator, the emission would be expressed by selecting the emission type between Well-to-Wake(WTW) and Tank-to-Wake(TTW). Customers can mark the estimated emissions on the bill of lading, and the relevant certificate can be issued based on actual transport data.
HMM expects this digital tool to create synergy with its Green Sailing Service, assisting customers in reducing their Scope 3 GHG emissions by sailing with low-carbon fuels.
An HMM official said, “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 footprint, thereby making significant headway in reaching carbon neutrality.”
