As the global focus on climate change intensifies, environmental regulations tighten, and consumer expectations evolve, companies are increasingly leaning into carbon accounting to measure and manage their impact. With this shift, the quality of a company’s carbon emission factors is more critical than ever.
Many food and beverage companies are using common emission factor databases, delivering generalized data, which can introduce a wide array of risks to their business. Instead of such generalized emission factors, companies using granular emission factors have greater insight into their GHG impact accounting and, consequently, can design more effective carbon reduction strategies. Granularity in this realm can lead to positive business impacts including direct cost reduction, lower costs of capital, and greater sales opportunities.
