Green Supply Chain: Carbon Management

Green Supply Chain: Carbon Management






January 8, 2019

With emerging regulations on carbon emissions, all organizations will be probably affected by Carbon Management. Therefore organizations are starting to take notice.

“For many people the terms Carbon Management and Green Supply Chains are synonymous, however, rather obviously, the two are different. Carbon Management, though a vast subject in its own right, is just one small subset of the overall Green Supply Chain framework. For example, an organization can outsource most of its carbon producing activities to locations in jurisdictions outside the regulatory purview of its own country. With free trade it may then reap the full rewards of such outsourcing, but, without bearing any responsibility for the carbon impact of those outsourced activities. The obvious Green Supply Chain answer is then that the organization at the demand end of a supply chain, should take on the full responsibility for the carbon impact of its entire supply chain.”

In this chapter of Green Supply Chain – An action manifesto, you will receive answers to: “What is Carbon Management, and why is it important? “With explanations on Carbon measurement, Carbon minimization, Carbon offsetting, Carbon trading.

    MNCs need to not only ask suppliers questions but also help them get the technical assessments, coaching, and resources they need. Some managers mistakenly believe that disclosure requests will automatically send a signal that leads suppliers to reduce emissions, while in reality, surveys are often assigned to personnel without budgets, and carbon-reducing investments are not made.

    Carbon Management is a scholarly peer-reviewed forum for insights from the diverse array of disciplines that enhance our understanding of carbon dioxide and other GHG interactions – from biology, ecology, chemistry, and engineering to law, policy, economics, and sociology. The core aim of Carbon Management is it to examine the options and mechanisms for mitigating the causes and impacts of climate change, which includes mechanisms for reducing emissions and enhancing the removal of GHGs from the atmosphere, as well as metrics used to measure performance of options and mechanisms resulting from international treaties, domestic policies, local regulations, environmental markets, technologies, industrial efforts and consumer choices. One key aim of the journal is to catalyze intellectual debate in an inclusive and scientific manner on the serious work of policy implementation related to the long-term effort of managing our global GHG emissions and impacts. Decisions made in the near future will have profound impacts on the global climate and biosphere. Carbon Management delivers research findings in an accessible format to inform decisions in the fields of research, education, management, and environmental policy.
