Accredited estimates you can trust
Global coverage of all modes of transport
How it works
Estimate your transportation and logistics emissions with confidence
1. Prepare transportation and logistics activity data
Work with your TMS, Logistics Service Provider or other platform to get shipment-level activity data.
2. Upload the data in CSV or use our API
Upload a CSV file with activity data or ask your developers to send the data to us by API.
3. Get GLEC Framework accredited emissions estimates and insights
Get shipment-level accredited emissions estimates and generate reports in line with the GLEC declaration, GHG Protocol and others.
Carbon footprinting you can trust
A one-stop shop for all modes of transport
Our goal is always to deliver granular, accurate and trustworthy data.
For sea freight, we use the Clean Cargo Working Group methodology, and the IMO methodology. Boost accuracy further by providing the IMO vessel number.
For air shipments, when enough data is available, we use a modelled approach based on the ICAO methodology. Boost accuracy further by providing the flight number.
For road transportation, we use emissions factors from the GLEC Framework in combination with the GHG Protocol methodology. Boost accuracy further by specifying the class or size of vehicle.
For rail transportation, we use emissions factors from the GLEC Framework in combination with the GHG Protocol methodology.
For inland waterways transportation, we use emissions factors from the GLEC Framework in combination with the GHG Protocol methodology. Boost accuracy further by specifying the type and size of barge.
For logistics sites, we use emissions factors from the GLEC Framework in combination with the GHG Protocol methodology. Boost accuracy further by specifying type of site.
Boost accuracy with Pledge’s smart routing algorithms
For shipments that are pre-execution or when actual distance travelled is otherwise not available, Pledge harnesses smart routing technology to fill the gap and boost accuracy beyond more naive approaches.
Flight routing based on actual flight-paths, kept up to date with no-fly zones and evolving geopolitical situations.
Maritime routing based on actual shipping routes with the option to configure routes that avoid canals, piracy zones and more.
Information that leads to action
Hotspots - quickly see where most emissions are coming from
Monitor the direction of travel - keep an eye on progress by using industry standard metrics
Mode of transport contribution
Life-cycle analysis - Breakdown by Well-to-tank and Tank-to-wheel
On-demand shareable snapshots
Pledge makes emissions reporting simple and straightforward. And for freight, we have been accredited to report in line with the GLEC Declaration.
Naturally, all reports can be downloaded and easily shared with stakeholders.
