Partners and Funders

Scaling through partners

To scale our impact we partner with organizations and initiatives worldwide.

SFC formed the Global Logistics Emissions Council (GLEC) in 2014 with more than 150 leading companies, industry associations, programs, experts and other organizations. Our Advisory Council of leading experts from academic institutions, international organizations and businesses ensures that SFC’s activities are best positioned to achieve our mission.

We have formal partnerships with BSR, CDP, World Business Council for Sustainable Development, and take part in various councils, including the WEF Global Future Council on Mobility, the UN-led Global Green Freight Action Plan, the Action towards Climate-friendly Transport Initiative (ACT), and the ALICE European technology platform for logistics.

SFC is a non-profit organization for the benefit of society as a whole. Charitable funds therefore continue to be essential for us to develop global standardized guidelines and advocacy work where the sector and society as a whole benefits. Our funders are Shell Foundation, Hewlett Foundation, Trafigura Foundation, UPS Foundation, Energy Foundation China, WeMeanBusiness and the European Commission.

Companies and organizations contribute to projects financially or in kind, and pay for services that benefit them directly, such as advice, assessments, training and workshops. Services can be either provided by SFC or our accredited and licensed partners.
