SAP and WBCSD: Making strides towards real carbon accounting
Calling for a transformation of the carbon accounting system
Credible emissions data is key for companies to take targeted decarbonization action across their supply chains and measure progress over time. This requires a carbon accounting system which enables access to accurate, granular, and comparable data. Companies and consumers need to be able to understand the real impact of their products to reduce this as they cannot manage what they cannot measure. To achieve this, and mirroring the financial accounting approach, data needs to be passed along the value chain from one company to the next, tied to specific products and services in the form of a carbon invoice.
