VM0020 Transport Energy Efficiency from Lightweight Pallets, v1.0
3. Energy demand, 7. Transport
06 November 2012
This methodology calculates the avoided net greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from project activities involving the use of pallets — the flat, portable structures that support goods during freight transport — lighter in weight than conventional alternatives. Projects must replace existing fleets of conventional wood pallets with lightweight pallets, or projects must establish a new fleet using lightweight pallets. Projects reduce fuel consumption and associated GHG emissions by reducing the total weight of goods transported.
