The carbon emissions measurement and offsetting platform joins FIATA in the next step to achieving global sustainability goals within the freight forwarding sector
London, UK, 02.10.2023: Pledge has become a valued sustainability partner of the International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations (FIATA), marking a significant step in its objective to drive sustainable and resilient supply chains.
Pledge enters a unique position as the only sustainability partner of the organisation, which represents over 40,000 freight forwarding and logistics firms worldwide.
As a source of knowledge on upcoming emissions regulations, in tandem with FIATA’s network and consequent insight into international transport and logistics policy, Pledge will work in collaboration with other members to promote greater sustainability in the global logistics ecosystem.
“This partnership is a positive step in FIATA’s work to support its members in achieving sustainability goals in transport and logistics, and FIATA looks forward to seeing what this new collaboration with Pledge will bring,” said Stéphane Graber, Director General, FIATA.
Pledge enables freight forwarders to provide their clients with the data and insights they need to meet emissions disclosure regulations and implement sustainability strategies.
This partnership will therefore act as a significant catalyst for the decarbonisation of global logistics.
“Collaboration is the driving force behind sustainable change. As FIATA’s sustainability partner, Pledge looks to facilitate impactful action on carbon reduction among its members,” said David de Picciotto, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder, Pledge.
Pledge will be at the 2023 FIATA congress in Brussels, where it will be helping members utilise technology to drive greener practices in their day-to-day operations and drive the decarbonisation of the logistics supply chain.
