Supply Chain Emissions Initiative

Supply Chain Emissions Initiative

The global economy is responding to growing, dire climate change concerns. Over half of S&P 500 companies have targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Financial institutions are elevating climate risk in their investment considerations. Company shareholders, employees, and customers are demanding corporate action to reduce emissions. And governments are mandating climate risk reporting.

However, currently stakeholders struggle to uncover the emissions from their activities. There is no credible way to measure the emissions created by producing the steel or aluminum that goes into the car you drive, the refrigerator that chills your food, or the bridge commissioned by your city. RMI is working to change that.

Accounting Protocols

Accelerating decarbonization by establishing emissions transparency through the Coalition on Materials Emissions Transparency (COMET). COMET is creating a universal greenhouse gas calculation framework that can be used in all industrial supply chains.

Market Participation & Standards

Providing technical expertise to leading corporations to mitigate supply chain emissions, and bringing those lessons forward to corporate actors, the financial sector, and regulators.

Digital Infrastructure & Exchanges

Improving emissions accuracy by working with the Energy Web Foundation to create a blockchain platform that will digitally track emissions through a supply chain.
