Voluntary climate measures on the Swedish freight transport market : an interview study (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna intervjustudie frågar både köpare och utförare av godstransporter efter åtgärder för att minska utsläpp av klimatgaser, åtgärdernas kostnader och effekter. De intervjuade företagen har valts bland företag med uttalade klimatstrategier. Resultaten visar att företagen genomför flera frivilliga klimatåtgärder, men är att företagens egna uppgifter är otillräckliga för att bedöma om de tar på sig betydande kostnader för att nå minskningar. Informationen räcker inte heller för att bedöma om effekten av åtgärderna leder till betydande minskningar jämfört med företag utan uttalade klimatstrategier. Vi drar slutsatsen att en mer konkret och trovärdig kommunikation av företagens klimatåtgärder kanske skulle kunna öka transportköparnas vilja att betala mer för mindre klimatbelastande transporter.

Abstract [en]

This interview study asks both buyers and providers of road freight transport about measures to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases, their costs and effects. The interviewed companies have been selected among companies with explicit climate strategies. The results show that the companies are implementing several voluntary climate measures, but that the companies' own data are insufficient to assess whether they take on significant costs to achieve emission reductions. Further, the information is not enough to assess if the measures result in significant reductions of emissions compared to companies without explicit strategies. We conclude that more credible communication might be able to increase transport buyers' willingness to pay more for less climate impact of transportation.
