CALCULATION OF ENERGY CONSUMPTION AND GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS FROM TRANSPORT SERVICES

Environmental acceptability of vehicle operation is currently an important
criterion of quality in transport services. Increasingly carrier requires a declaration of
the impact of their activities on the environment through the issuing of documents
containing specific amounts of pollutant emissions from traffic, especially carbon
dioxide (CO2) as the most widespread greenhouse gas. Different approaches to
calculate energy consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from traffic have
led to the need to standardize their methodologies.
