Supply Chain Consulting launches five-step carbon emission-reduction platform

CarbonView helps companies become greener by implementing their carbon emission reduction strategy and by monitoring their performance against that strategy.

"Industry leaders like DuPont, IBM, 3M, and Wal-Mart are the early adopters of sound environmental strategies, and now every socially responsible company should have a carbon management strategy," says John Nadvornik, director of product marketing and strategy for Supply Chain Consulting . "The proactive enterprises that begin laying a foundation for a green supply chain now will leapfrog their competition.
"Most organizations see the value of implementing green supply chains, but they struggle to get started and fail to make substantial progress," continues Nadvornik. "That's why we created the Carbon Management Model, a five-step process for implementing an enterprise-wide carbon management strategy and our corresponding CarbonView platform that provides the technology layer needed to support each phase."
CarbonView helps companies become greener by implementing their carbon emission reduction strategy and by monitoring their performance against that strategy. It is the first available green technology that enables organizations to capture, analyze and optimize carbon emission data across the extended supply chain while considering financial impacts. As a result, an organization can evaluate how different carbon management strategies will impact both the environment and the bottom line.
Supply Chain Consulting works globally with a number of key carbon database suppliers to provide comprehensive greenhouse gas emission data. In the future, organizations will require this data for effective analysis of the environmental consequences of their operations.
Using this data and internally collected data, businesses can run different supply chain scenarios. These scenarios compare economic and environmental changes and the impact on a company's supply chain to determine which scenario is environmentally sound and financially viable. In addition, CarbonView allows ongoing carbon emission monitoring with alerts set to be triggered once operations cause emissions to reach pre-determined levels.
According to Dr. Cameron Hepburn, a leading academic in climate change economics at Oxford University and contributor to the Stern Review on the Economics of Climate Change, "Businesses have an overwhelming role to play in helping with emissions reductions. Effective incentives and policies will be a driver for many organizations, but this has to be backed up by strong analytics. To drive their emissions down, companies need to be able to collate, view and analyze their environmental information. Solutions such as Supply Chain Consulting's CarbonView can help companies increase profits by reducing emissions."
