Based on the guidelines below, nowadays tools developed and offered, in addition to the model software.

ISO/NEN guidelines

The ISO standard on CO2 emissions in transport and logistics is expected to become available in 2022. It is likely that this standard will then be adopted by the EU, as an EN standard succeeding the existing EN16258.

The main discussion in the ISO working groups is how to distribute the emissions from a (distribution) trip, or a train passing through several stations, or an inland waterway vessel calling at several terminals, to the individual jobs in that trip. In the jargon of the standards, this is called “allocating.”
