Abstract: This paper aims to measure carbon footprints of products at the sectoral level. Using a data set for 9 industry sectors and environmental extended input-output tables we estimate the CFs. While Europe and the world argue over carbon mitigation targets a quiet debate on how to measure and how track, and how to allocate emissions of supply chains is emerging. Few authors have focused on the role of supply chains, freight transport, carbon footprints, and the need for a consumption based approach (CBA) for measuring carbon emissions. European living standards will need to decline if a global carbon footprint standard for products or a tax on carbon footprints were imposed.In this paper we propose seven key policies to minimize the carbon footprint of freight transport and of supply chains. Solutions are singled out for supply chains and for freight transport within the context of the CBA for measuring CO2 (carbon dioxide) emissions.
