September 29, 2014

Companies, industries, and governments are looking at the impacts climate change will have on their markets and economies. At the heart of their efforts is the question of how to effectively reduce the total life cycle greenhouse gas emissions, or “carbon footprint” of products, supply chains and services.

See the MIT Sloan Sustainability Initiative for the story.
