This study examines aspects of CO2 emissions reduction in logistics activities of a number of large UK companies. Data were collected from in-depth interviews with logistics managers of UK companies across different sectors. The research identified the main drivers and barriers for CO2 reduction initiatives in these companies. It was also found that most CO2 reduction initiatives are mainly operational and tactical in nature, and a major driver for companies to adopt CO2 emission initiatives has been the link be-tween emissions reduction and cost re-duction.
