Automated CO2 calculations
Insights into the transport-related carbon footprint and identify areas for further supply chain improvements.
Because less is more…
Now that the European Parliament has approved the Carbon Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), carbon accounting is another step closer to becoming an unavoidable part of daily business life. By 2025, over 50,000 companies in Europe will need to start reporting on their carbon emissions, including ‘Scope 3 emissions’ which include those caused by outsourced goods transport. This will require a huge amount of carbon data to be incorporated into the existing supply chain data flows.
Measure it to manage it
Reducing the transport-related carbon footprint starts with assessing the current situation. But when faced with large volumes of data, monitoring and calculating the carbon emissions worldwide can be a very complex task. The BigMile Emission API can enhance the digital transformation with automated CO2 calculations and allocations. By integrating the BigMile Emission API, you can provide yourself as well as your customers with insights into the transport-related carbon footprint and identify areas for further supply chain improvements.
Plug and play
This emission API provides instant CO2 calculations for any shipment using any mode of transport: rail, road, sea, air or barge. These calculations can be allocated to products and communicated to clients. All BigMile calculations are ISAE 3000-certified; a stamp of approval for your organization saying you and the systems you use are treating data correctly and in compliance with the GDPR.
The BigMile Emission API complies with the Representational State Transfer (REST) guidelines. It enriches business applications and platforms with resilient CO2 calculations to facilitate measuring and reporting of accurate and trusted values.
It has already been widely integrated with various transport management systems, enterprise resource planning systems and financial applications.
The BigMile Emission API analyses data inputs to provide instant CO2 calculations. These can be used for all kinds of operational purposes, including commercial documents (e.g. proposals or invoices), official transport documents (e.g. e-CMR), reporting and analysis.

It is becoming mandatory for a growing number of organizations to report on their CO2 emissions, but the relevance of the insights varies for different parts of the organization. For example:
- Logistics department: for mandated reporting on carbon emissions caused by transport and logistics processes, including by third parties
- Financial department: for monitoring and trading emissions within the EU Emissions Trading System
- Commercial department: as a unique selling point towards clients
- Operational department: as part of reduction initiatives
The BigMile Emission API is a REST API which makes it easy for developers to integrate emission calculation and allocation functions into their own software solutions. BigMile uses common standards to produce trustful and compliant results with different types of input data. It covers all modes of transport and vehicle profiles related to the chosen calculation framework.
