- About InterLOG
Green logistics is towards sustainable and environmentally friendly goals, minimizing negative environmental impacts. Green logistics governs all three economic, social, and environmental goals at the same time. These three goals are not mutually exclusive, but on the contrary, reinforce each other. All efforts of green logistics are focused on contributing to and ensuring sustainable development.
Green logistics requires close coordination between the Government, businesses, and the community. Diversify greening solutions in the supply chain in all aspects, such as:
A carbon tax is a tax applied to CO2 emissions from burning fossil fuels, which is one of the causes of global warming and climate change. The carbon tax aims to price emissions, preventing excessive energy exploitation, use, and consumption. The carbon tax is seen to offset the damage to society and the environment.
Each country will have a different carbon tax. The EU is the first trading area in the world to levy a carbon tax on imported goods. The main features of a carbon tax are:
"Net – zero" is not increasing the total amount of greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere or is also understood as reducing carbon emissions to zero from production, design, or construction. First and foremost, anthropogenic emissions must be reduced as close to zero as possible. The state is achieved using materials that reduce greenhouse gas emissions or methods that consume or absorb all the CO2 emitted in manufacturing.
Vietnam has made firm commitments to respond to climate change towards the goal of "zero" emissions - Net Zero by 2050 at the United Nations Climate Change Summit in 2021 (COP26). This is a challenging "hard" race for Vietnam in the current period of economic development. However, this is also a golden opportunity for sustainable economic growth, helping Vietnamese businesses make more efforts in their commitment to phase out coal power and switch to global clean electricity.
A carbon credit is a certification representing the right to emit one ton of carbon dioxide (CO2) or other greenhouse gas equivalent to 1 ton of CO2 (abbreviated as tCO2e). This is a trading unit on the carbon credit market. There are two main types of carbon markets: Compulsory Carbon Markets and Voluntary Carbon Markets.
The carbon credit trading market is gradually heating up in Vietnam; the Government has issued Decree 06/2022 on mitigating greenhouse gas emissions and protecting the ozone layer. The Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment has developed the project "Developing a carbon market in Vietnam" towards the target that will start piloting from 2025 in Vietnam and 2028 will officially operate the carbon credit exchange.
Polluting companies are awarded credits that allow them to discharge an amount up to a specific limit. That limit is reduced periodically. First, they have to spend money on additional credits if their emissions exceed the limit. Second, they can make money by reducing their emissions and selling their excess credits to another company in need.
The development of Vietnam'sVietnam's carbon credits market is one of the economic tools that has been included in the Law on Environmental Protection since 2020. However, so far, the recognition and issuance of carbon credits still depend on third parties, which are international credit institutions or mechanisms.
Milk-run is transporting goods and production materials from suppliers to customers. Unlike traditional forms of transport, freight cars will travel according to a specified route through many suppliers, collect goods and finally return to the first starting point for delivery. InterLog has been applying the Milk-run solution very well to the supply chain, helping customers and partners to cut costs and take advantage of idle time.
This solution brings businesses and society many benefits:
For regular import and export flows, InterLOG proposes a method of reusing empty containers of imports for exports, saving the time it takes to pick up and return empty containers.
This solution benefits both business and society:
In 2011, InterLOG cooperated with Saigon Newport to transport heavy container barges from Cat Lai port to Nhon Trach Industrial Park. This is the InterLog solution to create and exploit the form of freight transport across the Dong Nai River with great success and is highly appreciated by partners. This solution is still being proposed and applied by InterLOG, bringing long-term and sustainable effects to customers.
This solution brings high efficiency to businesses and society:
