Dynamic carbon footprinting
The early focus by individual businesses on the reduction of their own carbon footprint is being superseded by a phase of building carbon-constrained business networks. Across these networks, businesses evaluate each others' footprints and conduct business accordingly. Dynamic carbon footprinting is emerging as a powerful tool for guiding operational logic and business transformation into the carbon-constrained markets, with delivery of huge reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.
