Incorporation of environmental aspects in transport purchasing

Berglund, Anders and Jönson, Gunilla LU (2000)
Abstract
In spite of the fact that transport is the fastest growing sector relevant to the environment and

that there is an awareness in society of the environmental problems caused by transportation,

there are still few methods addressing the problem.

In this article research with a case study approach is presented. The research has resulted in a

framework model consisting of two tools and a work process. The first tool makes it possible

to assess environmental performance, while the second tool provides a method for assessing

environmental aspects of a specific transport relation. The model makes it possible to identify

the resource efficiency and effectiveness in a transport system.
