What’s the issue?

We know that fossil fuels like gasoline and diesel release carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, into the atmosphere. According to the Greater London Authority, 25% of carbon emissions come from transporting freight around the city.

Additionally, Londoners suffer from poor air quality due to other transport-related emissions such as nitrogen oxides, particulate matter, and sulphur oxides.

Public and private organisations are under growing pressure to operate more sustainably. Measuring the impacts of:

  • how they transport goods and services; and
  • movements of vehicles in a given area

will help quantify your transport emissions, allowing you to establish a baseline and the effectiveness of any changes you implement.

About CRP and the Transport Emissions Calculator

Cross River Partnership (CRP) manages the transport emissions calculator as part of Clean Air Villages 4 (CAV4).

CAV4 is a Defra-funded project led by Westminster City Council in collaboration with 26 project partners to improve air quality across different London ‘villages’, where air pollution and population density levels are high.

Visit CRP's website to see other tools we have developed to help improve London’s air quality while supporting businesses. You can also see our publications for related research and case studies.

We’re happy to help you further understand your transport emissions or answer questions related to our other work, so do get in touch.
