Supply Chain Emissions
Supply chain emissions are important because they account for a significant portion of global greenhouse gas emissions. According to the World Economic Forum, supply chain emissions make up about 80% of a company’s total emissions. This is because the supply chain includes all the activities involved in getting a product from its source to the consumer, such as transportation, manufacturing, and packaging.
