How using granular emission factors leads to direct cost reduction, lower costs of capital, and greater sales opportunities

What's inside
Many food and beverage companies are using common emission factor databases, delivering generalized data, which can introduce a wide array of risks to their business. Instead of such generalized emission factors, companies using granular emission factors have greater insight into their GHG impact accounting and, consequently, can design more effective carbon reduction strategies.
This white paper explores the benefits of using granular emission factors, laying out three likely scenarios a CPG could face with very different results from using generalized vs. granular emissions data.
