CocoonCarbon is at the heart of our digital ecosystem - absolutely everything we do at CocoonFMS® is about making sure that we protect the environment.
We also realise that the logistics industry unfortunately is a big contributor to emissions that are harmful to the planet. That’s why all our servers are carbon offset and use electricity from wind farms and green eco-friendly sources.
We have also looked at how we can help logistics companies and their clients manage and report on their impact on the environment by developing CocoonCarbon.
We have carried out extensive research to find out how to measure and report on carbon emissions. We have gone to the lengths of actually speaking to pilots of 747 freight aircraft to find out how exactly the burn of fuel happens.
As we don’t operate our own vessels, planes or trucks we can’t work out the exact route each shipment takes, also there could be massive differences in weather conditions, speed of vessels, and other factors that can distort or affect a calculation. We do however know the start and endpoints, and using our algorithms we can accurately calculate the distances. For road freight we can even work out the route distances suitable for HGVs. For seafreight we can also plot the exact distance to the nearest 100 n/km.
Over the last few years, we have been enhancing our CocoonCarbon product and now have very accurate location data for ports, airports, and postcodes.
Our carbon emissions software can measure your carbon footprint anywhere within the supply chain door to door and the shipments legs in between, you also don't have to pay per shipment leg. For example, if you had 100kgs shipping from Downtown Manhattan to Lichfield in the UK we can measure all the different emissions. For example, truck to JFK, airplane to Hamburg airport to Stansted via Airplane, and Stansted to Lichfield via truck.
Not only do we measure the Carbon Emissions we also measure the following:
We display this information in a nice easy visual way. We don't stop there either! We also provide you with actionable information to help with your carbon offsetting and the cost of offsetting your carbon footprint via carbon credits. If you like, you can automatically purchase trees through a Gold Standard partner which helps with the sequester of carbon emissions. Our calculations are based on the GHG Protocol methodology.
* you can't purchase trees via the iFrame, however, we do give the information needed to help you plant trees and carbon offset through carbon credits.
We have big plans for the tool which will enhance and improve the ability of anyone importing or exporting to measure their complete supply chain which will help with any Scope 3 projects and help your business to become carbon neutral.
