The need to measure, manage, and offset carbon emissions associated with global supply chains long ago moved from vanity exercise to strategic imperative. But moving from ambitious goals to tactical change is where things get messy. If sustainability was so easy, it would have been done long ago. But it involves internal functions as disperse as product development, sourcing, procurement, and international logistics. And even within logistics, it necessitates that shippers and third-party logistics providers can rely on carbon calculation data of third-party capacity operators. That indirect carbon footprint is the hardest to measure, and to control. In this session, experts in the field of sustainability will explain how technology can help the freight industry come to grips with ever-tougher mandates on carbon emissions — mandates from governments, from customers, and from investors.
