July 28 - Damco has introduced a Supply Chain Carbon Dashboard, a graphical representation that allows customers to keep track of their carbon footprint throughout their supply chain.

The dashboard is an addition to Damco's portfolio of supply chain development services that already includes the Supply Chain Health Check™ and the Supply Chain Carbon Check™, which support customers globally in their quest of identifying cost efficiencies and reducing the environmental impact of supply chains.

According to Erling Johns Nielsen, head of Damco's supply chain development team, the dashboard enables customers to report their carbon emissions periodically, and thereby helps in executing their carbon strategy.

"By displaying carbon emissions on a detailed level, for example by transport mode or by product, the Carbon Dashboard immediately allows you to identify 'carbon hotspots' in your supply chain. This will help you reduce your carbon footprint, in response to the growing focus on climate change, while at the same time generating genuine cost savings opportunities," says Mr Nielsen.
