Standardization of emission calculation is progressing swiftly in order to support the improvement of the sustainability of transport chains. Using the GLEC Framework v1.0 as a starting point, this research maps out, which further gaps need to be addressed for ensuring seamless coverage at a meaningful accuracy of such a calculation. The analysis is based on a desk research complemented by considerations and feedback received in the context of real-life test cases of the GLEC Framework. The paper closes with an outlook on requirements towards an eco-label related to the emission calculation standardization.
