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.
