Your customers, in turn, will need to report their own carbon emissions to theirclients. These clients will need to add up all of the carbon emissions from their supplychain. Those businesses who are in a position to specify their carbon footprint to their customers,are more likely to gain a competitive marketing supply advantage over their competitors.
