Quantifying GHG emissions in business supply chains

Understanding and quantifying how greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are embodied in different goods and services is rapidly developing both as an academic area and as a business and policy tool. This project will develop much more rigorous and practical methods for quantifying GHG emissions in business supply chains, in particular to allow robust business decisions to be made about materials, products and services sourced from different regions of the world.
