Riege Software integrates a CO₂ calculator into Scope that determines the emission values of individual shipments. The tool developed by CarbonCare is available to all Scope customers at no charge in the basic version and can be used for all transport modes.

The Swiss company CarbonCare offers a simple but efficient emissions calculator, which Riege Software has integrated into Scope and offers to all customers free of charge in the basic version. The emissions calculator can be used multimodally and can combine any transports.

Peter Somaglia, Partner at CarbonCare, explains: “CarbonCare's CO₂ calculator has now been on the market for almost 3 years and after a somewhat slow start, the demand for user licenses has risen significantly in recent months. Our online program for calculating and offsetting greenhouse gases is based on the approved EN16258 standard and has been put through its paces by the Swiss Federal Ministry of the Environment on the one hand and validated by the myclimate foundation on the other.”

In addition to the calculation of CO₂ values, CarbonCare offers various licenses as well as data storage and analysis options. By integrating the CO₂ calculator, Riege Software enables its customers to take an important step towards climate-friendly transports and is convinced of the benefits of determining greenhouse emissions for the long-term reduction of the CO₂ footprint in logistics.

“Our forwarders want to do their part to initiate a turnaround in CO2 emissions in their transports. The cornerstone of this strategy is to measure CO₂ emissions in order to be able to show the industry alternatives based on this. We are pleased to have gained such a competent partner as CarbonCare for this measurement. The integration in Scope is designed in such a way that everything is calculated and updated automatically in the background - the Scope customers are thus relieved and can devote themselves to their actual core tasks: direct customer support”, Tobias Riege, CEO Riege of Software states.
