Van den Bosch is first independent carrier to meet ISO 14083 requirements

Van den Bosch is first independent carrier to meet ISO 14083 requirements

Van den Bosch is the first carrier worldwide to be independently verified for CO2 emission calculations and reporting that meet the applicable requirements from ISO 14083:2023. This confirms that CO2 emissions are calculated and reported in a demonstrably reliable manner, fully in line with European legislation and environmental requirements.

Since the first quarter of 2023, there has been an international standard for allocating CO2 emissions from activities in the transport chain: ISO 14083. Based on these requirements, logistics companies and their service-providers can clearly calculate, allocate and share their carbon footprint within the chain. Van den Bosch achieved the result following an independent review by LRQA, with its CO2 calculation meeting the requirements of ISO 14083. LRQA is an organisation with expertise in certification, accredited to the ISO 17021 standard.  

The only one in the world
Van den Bosch was part of a pilot group set up by Topsector Logistiek. Topsector Logistiek is a tripartite partnership between people from the business community, science and the government. The pilot group was set up in order to translate the ISO standard into a practical guide which also included a self-assessment questionnaire (SAQ) for assessing ISO 14083 within the organisation. 

This result makes Van den Bosch the only company in the world to have both an in-house CO2 calculation and a CO2 platform that meet these requirements and allow CO2 emissions to be calculated and allocated throughout the supply chain. It also enables the logistics service-provider to allocate CO2 emissions per activity. 

Strategy objectives
"The verified CO2 calculation means that we can meet customer requirements by being able to allocate CO2 emissions to specific shipments, modalities and suppliers, for example, in accordance with the standard" said Brecht den Otter, Sustainability Specialist at Van den Bosch. "Besides this being a milestone in terms of our CO2 calculation, it also represents a step forward on our route to 2030 where sustainability is a major focus. We can be proud of this achievement which fits in precisely with our sustainability concept from that strategy. We are now able to set realistic CO2 reduction targets for 2030."
