    Understanding the Footprint: Project Cargo Logistics and the Growing Pressure to Measure and Manage Carbon Emissions

    As the energy transition gains traction, project owners and EPCs face increasing pressure to forecast, disclose, and reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, both direct and indirect, throughout the project logistics supply chain. Avoiding engagement will increasingly restrict business opportunities, while verifiable, accurate carbon emissions information will be required by a multitude of stakeholders, including shareholders, investors, and national and international regulatory agencies. How should shippers and their logistics service providers capture and incorporate reliable, verifiable carbon emissions data, management, and control into their procurement and supply chain planning and investments? In this roundtable discussion, a global project cargo shipper and project logistics service providers will discuss the decision-making and commitment needed to meet increasingly complex carbon-footprint management requirements.
