GreenLogistics Masterclass -Diskussing key issues and strategies for a greener future in the logistics sector

Vilnius, Lithuania (31st May 2024) – Following the energizing ADMIRAL Partner Meeting, the GreenLogistics Masterclass continued the momentum by delving into key issues and strategies for creating a greener future in the logistics sector. Organized by the Transport Innovation Association and sponsored by the EU-funded ADMIRAL Project, this event was held at Tech Park in Vilnius and also available online, attracting transport and logistics professionals as well as sustainability enthusiasts.


The masterclass began with a session on reporting CO2 emissions, led by Indrė Blauzdžiūnaitė, sustainability consultant and partner at Sustinere. She highlighted the importance of accurate reporting and provided practical guidance on what logistics companies need to know to effectively measure and manage their emissions.
Radhika Ralhan, Global Sustainability Impact Leader and Faculty at the Smart Freight Centre Academy, then introduced participants to the GLEC framework. This practical methodology for calculating and reporting end-to-end logistics emissions is an essential tool for companies looking to reduce their carbon footprint. Ralhan’s detailed presentation covered the benefits of the framework and its application in different logistics contexts.


After a refreshing coffee break, Ieva Markucevičiūtė-Vinckė, an expert in transport digitalisation policy, presented on the topic of sustainable digitalisation in logistics. Her session, entitled “Sustainable digitalisation in logistics – another challenge or a unique opportunity?”, explored the transformative potential of digital technologies to make logistics operations more sustainable.


The masterclass concluded with a panel discussion moderated by Rugilė Andziukevičiūtė-Buzė, Managing Director of the Transport Innovation Association. The panel, which included industry leaders such as Eglė Šimė, CEO of LTG Cargo, Viktorija Terekė, Head of Sustainability at Girteka Europe West, and Robertas Vilkaitis, CEO of DPD Baltics (TBC), focused on concrete measures and technologies that have proven effective in reducing CO2 emissions in logistics. The lively discussion provided participants with valuable insights and actionable strategies to implement in their own operations.


As the Masterclass came to a close, attention turned to the upcoming GreenLogistics Hackathon. Starting the following day, this event will challenge participants to find innovative ways to reduce CO2 emissions in logistics chains through process optimisation and digitalisation. The Hackathon promises to be an exciting follow-up to the Masterclass, fostering creativity and collaboration among participants.

The GreenLogistics Masterclass was a fantastic day full of valuable discussions and fresh insights into sustainable logistics.
