GREEN BAY, Wis., March 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Breakthrough®Fuel will provide its insight at the G7 and Conference of the Parties (COP) summits. Breakthrough®Fuel was selected by Climate Change – The New Economy (CCTNE) to highlight the need for a global transportation emissions accounting system. This system will establish a baseline for which all companies can measure and manage their emissions. CCTNE is the leading publication on Climate Change and is the feature publication at the summits.
"More than 14 percent of global greenhouse gases (GHG) comes from the transportation sector," said Daniel Cullen, Breakthrough®Fuel's Director of Applied Knowledge. "That amount increases to more than 25 percent in developed economies and the freight industry comprises the most concentrated source for GHG emissions in this sector, making it a strong focal point for GHG reduction and the need for an accurate emissions baseline."
Once a baseline is created, world leaders can enact strong fuel efficiency standards that are achievable today and in the future as innovation continues to drive technological advances. This will provide global companies the ability to see their emissions status when compared to the baseline and to identify and implement strategies that will meet and exceed the new standards to reduce GHG emissions and create supply chain sustainability.
"There is definitely a desire by companies to reduce energy consumption, not only to save costs, but also to reduce their carbon footprint through a significant reduction in GHG emissions," Cullen said. "We are working with many of the world's leading brands to help them reduce consumption and emissions. This includes identifying alternative transportation modes and incorporating the use of alternative fuels to move products to market and the results are impressive."
In 2015 alone, Breakthrough®Fuel's clients reduced their CO2 emissions by more than 50,000 metric tons. "We are just one company working with a fraction of the companies in the world," Cullen said. "Imagine what could be accomplished if world leaders worked with each other and with the private sector to create change and build a low-carbon future."
