Transporter för hållbar utveckling : En optimering av utsläppsberäkningarna inom Coop
Man’s impact on the environment is something that increasingly becomes topical in today’s society. Because of this, several companies have started to take interest in the effects they’re responsible for, not least considering their image. Emissions of carbon dioxide generated from goods traffic are accountable for a large part of the total emissions of greenhouse gases in the world. This master thesis, assigned by and developed in cooperation with Coop, has therefore studied these emissions closer.
One purpose with this report is to describe the logistical situation at Coop today, how the emissions from transports are calculated, and in what ways this could be improved. A mapping of working and calculating methods has thus been done. This led to a number of suggestions for improvement, amongst others a reworked calculation method for the emissions, and theoretical ideas for how emissions could be reduced in the future.
Another purpose is to compare the emission quantities before and after the newly restructured logistical solution within the company, when some of the truck transports were replaced by transports by train. However, the complexity with several different systems for documentation and outspread responsibilities within the company, resulted in a lack of necessary data for the calculations to be complete. A limited result was calculated though.
