Industry Focus

Transport and Logistics

Our global economy relies on competitive transport and logistics solutions, both of which are vital for world trade. With increasing societal and regulatory expectations for the sectors’ positive contribution to a low-carbon and inclusive economy, sustainability requires collaboration and innovation.

Transport and Logistics Overview


How We Work


Over the past decade, BSR-led collaborative initiatives have helped dozens of transport and logistics companies engage with business partners and peers to improve environmental and social performance. Our Clean Cargo Working Group includes 23 ocean carriers that represent more than 85 percent of global ocean container capacity. Since 2009, the group’s carriers have offset 50 million tons of emissions for an average reduction of 16 percent.
