How is Netlogix helping reduce emissions?

Netlogix is committed to managing its operations in an environmentally sustainable and socially responsible manner, aligned to the commitments declared to the Sustainable Business Council and the Climate Leaders Coalition in New Zealand.

Simply by unlocking efficiencies and minimising empty kilometres, Netlogix helps ensure every route is more sustainable. By using in-depth data to match carriers’ availability to specific job requirements, we help reduce overall emissions and boost the sustainability performance of both shippers and carriers. 

This has important flow-on effects in terms of your sustainability performance, compliance with relevant governance frameworks, and reputation with customers and partners.

Reporting on emissions

As a technology-enabled transport network, Netlogix connects transport companies and their trucks into a single network to move freight for customers across the country. Therefore, scope 3 emissions relate primarily to freight moved by contracted transport companies on behalf of Netlogix customers. These are measured and monitored by customer, by transport company, by origin region and by delivery region.

In doing so, Netlogix is committed to reducing carbon emissions per freight unit, per kilometre travelled.

Netlogix is committed to reducing the emissions intensity of our business. Our reduction target for the year-ended 31 March 2022 was 8% of our scope 1 and 2 (fuel and electricity) emissions, bringing total reduction on our base assessment in 2020 to 18%, against which we have achieved a reduction of 36.7%. We continue to strive to further reduce emissions.

Scope 1 – emissions from sources controlled or owned by the company, including fuel for leased cars and forklifts.

Scope 2
– emissions from the generation of purchased electricity consumed by the company.

Scope 3
– emissions that occur as a consequence of the company’s activities, but from sources not owned or controlled by the company, including freight, business travel and waste.

Proven sustainability results

Under-utilised trucks travelling empty kilometres creates unnecessary costs and emissions. By optimising loads and capacity usage across the Netlogix platform, we’ve been able to reduce wasted kilometres. In the last three years, an estimated 102,000 tonnes of C02 emissions have been prevented from going into the atmosphere. This equates to:
