Standards & Tools

The high-level map below shows the major resources and ongoing initiatives relevant to product carbon reporting in the freight sector.

For detail on these and others, and for improvements, please use the "Group Work" section on the right.

For simplicity, resources are classified by their main area of focus: methodologies, databases for collecting and providing emissions factors, tools for performing calculations, or final reporting formats and exchanges. A few resources are listed under several headings. Some resources do not currently offer product carbon reporting services but are widely known so are listed for clarification purposes.
