Recently, many transport companies offer CO₂ monitoring as a (paid) service. Surprisingly, the outcome of this monitoring can often be quite different for the same shipment at another transport company. Often there is a lack of insight in the calculations behind the monitoring. More recently even; this has led to some European government initiatives to create reliable monitoring. This means a thorough analysis of the actual performance of any company, working with fixed standards.
The next step, which will follow in the coming years, will be an official certification of the CO₂ footprint of any company, even going so far that accountants will need to sign; and in future possible CO₂ tax being introduced. In the light of this developments, the industry associations are coordinating their efforts to create a high quality CO₂ monitoring that will meet the future standards.
