This release was originally publised on Lune.co.
Chain.io, a cloud-based integration platform that connects partners across the global supply chain, will integrate Lune, a software company focused on scalable climate impact. As part of the Chain.io network, Lune brings quality emissions calculations and carbon offsetting to Chain.io’s logistics service provider customers.
As logistics companies race to fulfil market and regulatory demand for enhanced emissions tracking and optimisation, direct integration between innovative emissions platforms like Lune and legacy transportation management systems are critical.
“Emissions data cannot be an afterthought and must be built into all aspects of a shipment’s lifecycle,” explains Brian Glick, Chain.io’s CEO. “Environmental impact is driving shipper behavior from purchasing through routing, and should be front-and-center for every logistics service provider.”
When a customer chooses to utilise Lune via the Chain.io network, they’ll get the benefits of working directly in their TMS while natively communicating with Lune’s cutting-edge APIs to capture and report on the carbon impact of each quote, shipment, or transport leg.
Chain.io removes the friction of working across multiple screens and systems, bringing critical data and insights directly into ERP’s and TMS’s with real-time data for increased transparency and connectivity across the whole supply chain.
Moving goods has significant environmental impact: the logistics sector is responsible for 5.5% of global greenhouse gas emissions (WEF). And for most businesses, supply chain emissions make up the vast majority of a company’s carbon footprint, as part of their scope 3 emissions.
The typical company’s supply chain creates far greater social and environmental costs than its own operations, accounting for more than 80% of its greenhouse gas emissions - McKinsey
With regulations making it mandatory for companies worldwide to report on scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions, there’s growing pressure. But, due to the lack of visibility, these supply chain emissions are difficult for companies to calculate and reduce.
Lune and Chain.io are joining forces to change that, bringing climate impact to the forefront of the supply chain.
Chain.io is now connected to Lune’s freight & logistics emissions calculations and carbon offsetting. Lune’s Smart Freight Centre-accredited calculation methodology is based on the GLEC Framework and the carbon offsetting projects are rigorously vetted for quality and impact.
This means freight forwarders can easily:
- Gain visibility into freight & logistics emissions, automatically calculating and transparently showing the emissions of even the most complex, multi-leg journeys, covering 100+ transport modes across road, rail, air, and sea, making sustainability reporting simple.
- Help shippers make greener choices and reduce their Scope 3 emissions by showing and promoting lower emissions shipment options.
- Take action and automatically make shipments carbon neutral, by allowing either shippers or logistics service providers to contribute to vetted, high-quality carbon projects, ranging from reforestation to direct air capture and more – bringing real climate action into every journey.
Erik Stadigh, CEO and co-founder of Lune, adds: "Chain.io are a proven leader in connecting supply chains across the planet— the same planet that cannot wait until 2050 for climate action to kick in. By partnering together, we’re thrilled to create a fast and easy way for shippers and Logistics Service Providers to quickly start creating scalable climate action, and bring Scope 3 emissions transparency into full view alongside global supply chains."
