Webinar: Cutting carbon emissions in humanitarian logistics

Logistics provider GEODIS is providing a free 40 minute webinar for HLA on the subject of reducing carbon emissions in humanitarian logistics. The webinar will include three speakers from GEODIS, a presentation of their eco transit measuring tool and a short interactive quiz.

During the webinar, GEODIS speakers will cover:

  • General WW transport context (increase of flows)
  • Environmental impact of each type of transport (rail, road, sea and air)
  • Focus on the energetic mix (how is the energy produced and the impact, for instance, electricity does not have the same impact if produced by coal as by sun or wind)
  • Energetic innovations for transport
  • A case study : transport from Europe to Middle East  by air & sea, or by air or by road
  • An animated tour around the eco transit measuring tool
  • Quiz of 10 questions
