ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the second annual report of the Logistics Carbon Reduction Scheme (LCRS), in relation to the transport industry's effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Great Britain. The report shows that carbon emissions intensity in the country was reduced to 2.6 percent between 2009 and 2010. Furthermore, Freight Transport Association (FTA) climate change policy manager Rachel Dillon says that more should be made to increase the number of participants in the scheme.
