Description The Logistics Carbon Reduction Scheme is a voluntary industry-led approach to reducing carbon emissions from road freight by recording and reporting reductions in CO2 emissions. The scheme is free to join and open to all commercial vehicle operators.
Objectives The scheme's target is an 8% reduction in emissions intensity by 2015, based on 2010 levels.

The objective is to demonstrate to Government that the industry is contributing to climate change targets without the need for regulation or additional taxation. The Logistics Carbon Reduction Scheme (LCRS) is in the process of being redeveloped and the new scheme will launch in the early part of 2018 as the Logistics Emissions Reduction Scheme (LERS) with a new logo and new website.

Activities The LCRS establishes a common methodology for the recording and reporting of greenhouse gas emissions from logistics, and it also guides actions to reduce future emission levels. The scheme identifies and promotes the principal means of reducing carbon emissions available to commercial vehicle operators and these have been formalised as the five Logistics Efficiency Indicators (LEIs). By measuring and monitoring these five key indicators and by taking action to improve some or all of their performance over time, operators can expect fuel usage to reduce and carbon emissions to decline.
