Companies seeking to measure and reduce their supply chain emissions face a complex task in gathering comparable data and verifying its quality. The Clean Cargo Working Group methodology was developed to balance technical accuracy with practical application. Transportation procurement managers use these tools as a factor in supplier selection and to quantify and drive improvements for this important category in corporate greenhouse gas reduction targets. Specifically, they can:
- Calculate a CO2 footprint
- Assess supplier environmental performance
- Select suppliers using sustainability criteria
In this guide, we explore each of these approaches to calculate and manage CO2 emissions from ocean container transport.
