European digital freight forwarder Forto has announced a partnership with decarbonisation software company Cozero to measure its greenhouse gas emissions in its 21 locations across Asia and Europe.

The partnership aims to create full transparency on Forto’s emissions, to help inform decisions such as travel and procurement policies, office and IT infrastructure, and logistics offerings.

Last month, Forto announced that it has committed to setting science-based net-zero targets in line with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) – and this collaboration with Cozero is expected to enable it to measure its progress against these targets and supports its goal of reducing emissions across the company.

Berlin-based Cozero’s technology considers emissions factors such as building and transport energy use, purchased goods and services, and server usage – to understand which activities produce the most emissions.

Cozero also offers in-platform guidance to enable companies to manage their own decarbonisation journey. 

“It is important to work with partners who share our mindset of constantly questioning the status quo to improve the way we operate,” said Pia Schwanenberg, senior sustainability manager at Forto. 

“This is what we owe our customers who measure their emissions, offset, and use biofuel to ship with us. We have been impressed by the quality of Cozero’s data and their willingness to go above and beyond to explain the methodology behind their calculations.

“We strongly share Cozero’s emphasis on partnership and value their focus on transparency. Both enable us to take informed decisions today to achieve necessary emission reduction tomorrow.”

Helen Tacke, founder and chief execuitve of Cozero, said: “It is a pleasure to work with a company that has put sustainability at the core of what it does and that has been measuring and managing its greenhouse gas emissions since day one.

“Together, we will both implement data-driven accounting of emissions and work on achieving Forto’s science-based targets. Forto is leading by example in an industry that dramatically needs to evolve and we look forward to building innovative software solutions that drive decarbonization across the whole logistics value chain.”
