Transportation and Distribution occur in both upstream and downstream elements of the value chain. Upstream applies to suppliers of the organization. Downstream, to the organization's customers. You can calculate your carbon emission using both km and tonne.km units in the platform.
If you are going to use tonne*km as unit of your transportation, make sure you selected right unit when creating a new source for upstream&downstream transportation.
To estimate emissions using tonne*km unit follow these steps:
- Multiply your the transported mass expressed in tonnes by the distance traveled expressed in kilometers.
- Enter this data in the amount section on the platform.
