Climate change has become one of the major challenges for the international community, the business world and individual citizens. The growing release of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere and its recognized effect on the climate is one important reason for this change. Carbon footprint quantification, analysis and reduction are key to preventing the growing volume of CO2.
There are many reasons why companies are mapping carbon impacts throughout their supply chain.

Knowing your company’s total carbon footprint allows you to make effective steps towards reducing the climate change impact of your business and supply chain activities.
