The identification of relevant control levers is required for the realisation of logistics services that are efficient in terms of resources and energy. In the Green Logistics project, a standardised, comprehensive and usage-related method for the ecological assessment of logistics processes and systems is being developed, i.e., a method that integrates the segments of logistics real estate and business premises, intralogistics and transport. This method will create the necessary transparency. The methodology and instruments to be developed and/or further developed for this purpose will be transferred into a certification system. A system definition was conducted on the applicability of the existing methods and standards in which the relevant gaps were identified that are to be closed through Green Logistics. These include the availability of valid data sources and key data. Electricity consumption measurements will be conducted to produce key data for the usage-related apportionment of the electricity consumption at logistics facilities locations.

…Due to increasingly serious environmental deterioration, sustainable development is becoming a vital issue facing various enterprises (Akyelken, 2011). Both environmental regulations and customer pressures have driven enterprises to adopt more environment-friendly operations (

). In the logistics area, green logistics has attracted more and more attention as an exemplar of sustainable development (Sheu et al., 2005)….

Grenzen des Carbon Footprint fr die Bewertung des ökologischen Bauens

Im Kontext aktueller Bemhungen um eine einheitliche Normierung zur Bestimmung des Carbon Footprint beschäftigt sich dieser Beitrag mit dessen Eignung fr die Bewertung des ökologischen Bauens. Der Carbon Footprint stellt eine Ökobilanz dar, welche ausschließlich die Wirkungskategorie Treibhauspotential erfasst. Es werden Methoden aufgezeigt und angewendet, mit denen die ökologische und…[Show full abstract]

Reducing the Environmental Impact of Urban Parcel Distribution

In the framework of rising requirements concerning the environmen-tal impact of urban parcel delivery, UPS has tested various approaches to re-duce emissions with steady or even enhanced operational efficiency. Three dif-ferent alternatives to classic diesel drive technology were tested in the city of Hamburg, i.e. parcel vehicles with electric drive, and e-assisted cargo tricycles either…[Show full abstract]

Der Beitrag erläutert, im Rahmen der Ökobilanz, die Komponente der Wirkungsabschätzung im Unterschied zum Risk Assessment. Er beginnt bei den frhen Ökobilanzen, geht ber zu den Ökobilanzen im modernen Sinn (Wirkungsabschätzung als eigene Komponente der Ökobilanz), beleuchtet die heute bliche Praxis der Wirkungsabschätzung, beschreibt deren Philosophie und endet mit den sog. neuen…[Show full abstract]
