    Carbon is challenging business in many ways and companies will continue to be pressured to better  manage their carbon emissions.  Companies that get ahead of the curve will be rewarded by  investors and consumers alike.  Companies that lag the curve run the risk of losing investor  confidence, consumer trust, and falling behind in product development.

As such, new supply chain visibility and planning tools need to be adopted in order to be able to consider carbon emissions as an additional factor in the decision making process.

     

     

    This presentation provides a brief exploration of the current carbon landscape and will outline the attributes of an ideal supply chain carbon management application.
