I coordinated and presented in another webinar for the Food Trade Sustainability Leadership Association, focused on “Managing GHG Emissions to Save Energy, Costs and the Environment.”
Measuring and managing greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) is critical for our industry. GHG emissions are directly tied to energy use, one of the biggest costs for business. They also contribute to global climate change, which has significant impacts on agriculture and supply chains. To thrive in this arena, companies must work to account for and reduce emissions from their operations as well as external activities.
