El Marco Operativo del GLEC: the GLEC Framework is now available in Spanish!

Amsterdam, 30 September 2021 - The Spanish translation of the GLEC Framework 2.0, El Marco Operativo del GLEC, was released today by Smart Freight Centre and the Global Logistics Emissions Council as part of our GIZ Mexico project.

After our v 2.0 of the Global Logistics Emissions Council (GLEC) Framework was released in 2019, we have seen the expansion of GLEC Framework users across the globe. The GLEC Framework is the only globally recognized methodology for harmonized calculation and reporting of the logistics GHG footprint across the multi-modal supply chain, and more than 120 leading multinationals are now using the GLEC Framework. It can be implemented by shippers, carriers and logistics service providers, and covers all modes of transport and logistics sites.

We believe that increased transparency and collaboration will mobilize companies to reduce the climate and pollution impact arising from global freight transportation. Decarbonization is achievable together, no matter what language you speak.

Smart Freight Centre is continuing to support the local efforts of freight decarbonization in Mexico. We’re collaborating with the German Cooperative of Sustainable Development (GIZ) Mexico and with the support of national programs like Transporte Limpio, and the Secretariat of Environment and Natural Resources (SEMARNAT), developing training programs that will provide appropriate frameworks for calculating and reporting emissions.

As part of our work together, we are happy to announce the launch of the Spanish translation of the GLEC Framework – El Marco Operativo del GLEC.

“We’re really pleased to be able to spread the word even further about calculation, reporting and reduction of emissions from freight transportation thanks to the translation of the GLEC Framework and the associated e-training course into Spanish. We hope this opens up a whole new audience for this important topic. Thanks to all those who helped make it possible.”
