- LMI's GAIA Sustainable Supply Chain Maturity Model provides companies with a framework to assess the maturity of their own organizations and programs for engaging suppliers on managing their GHG emissions, based on industry research.
- The Carbon Disclosure Project and its CDP Supply Chain Project initiative are programs for voluntary, public reporting of corporate GHG emissions inventories. The flagship Carbon Disclosure Project focuses on emissions disclosure by large corporations, whereas CDP Supply Chain serves its member companies by collecting emissions inventories from their suppliers.
- World Resources Institute/World Business Council for Sustainable Development Product and Supply Chain Protocol Standards . WRI and WBCSD developed the GHG Corporate Protocol Standard, which is widely used to account for corporate-wide GHG emissions. The forthcoming GHG Protocol standards will provide a standardized method to inventory the emissions associated with individual products across their full life cycles and of corporate value chains, taking into account impacts both upstream and downstream of the company's operations. By taking a comprehensive approach to GHG measurement and management, companies can focus attention on the greatest opportunities to reduce emissions within the full value chain.
