The multinational heavy asset carrier Hegelmann is working with Emitwise, the carbon accounting platform, to increase the accuracy of their emission data to enable carbon reduction.
Founded in 1998, the Hegelmann Group have offered a wide range of transport and logistics services for nearly 25 years, serving customers from practically every industry,engineering and manufacturing, pharma and healthcare, consumer and fresh food ,electronics and high value.
The sector, responsible for around 11% of global emissions, has increasingly been under pressure to reduce its carbon footprint.
In response, Hegelmann launched its Mission Green programme in 2021 to become carbon neutral by 2045. So far, its focus has been switching to renewable energy and transitioning its large fleet to greener options.
Andreas Schmidt, CEO of Hegelmann Express GmbH, states, “Effective emissions monitoring in the transportation logistics industry not only increases accountability and transparency, but also allows businesses to identify areas for improvement and implement carbon-cutting strategies. The industry can work toward a more sustainable future and play an important role in mitigating the effects of climate change by tracking and adjusting emissions on a regular basis. It’s also phenomenal to be on this journey with Emitwise.”
However, to accelerate their transition, Hegelmann needs accurate and transparent data to drive business decisions. Emitwise’s carbon accounting platform is renowned for its granular approach to calculating emissions across all three scopes. This level of accuracy substantiates the steps Hegelmann will take to achieve its low-carbon targets.
“It’s fantastic to work with companies that understand the importance of digitalizing their carbon strategies,” states Mauro Cozzi, CEO and Co-founder of Emitwise. “Hegelmann has ambitious reduction targets, and they can only achieve the accuracy needed to make decisions and confidently take action through technology. Logistics sit at the heart of every global supply chain, and we’re thrilled that lowering Hegelmann’s emissions will significantly reduce those of their customers too.
