Energy Efficiency Description:

Recently, the Korean government has put a high priority on energy efficiency and greenhouse-gas emissions reduction for freight transportation. Keeping up with the government’s efforts, KEMCO has been implementing Green & Smart Transportation Partnership through voluntary agreements with participants such as freight shippers, carriers and logistics companies. This partnership is to promote exchange of information and technologies between participants, to identify energy-saving measures, and to support the implementation of those measures in the freight transportation sector. Since 2010, 24 companies from various industries have signed the MOUs with KEMCO to participate in the Green & Smart Transportation Partnership. Over the last three years, participating companies assessed their current freight operations; calculated fuel consumption and GHG emissions; and identified technologies and strategies to improve fuel efficiency and reduce carbon emissions based on MRV methodology developed by KEA.
