Odette working with ECG and VDA to develop digital messages for supply chain emissions reporting
12 Feb 2024
The urgency for more sustainable and environmentally conscious automotive logistics practices has led ECG and VDA to work together to develop an Emissions Calculation and Reporting Guideline for automotive supply chains.
Odette develops standards which help automotive industry companies overcome the constant challenges arising in their supply chain operations.
The great strength of our standards is that they are created by people who are the experts in their field and know the real needs of the companies they represent. They are regularly reviewed to ensure that they remain relevant in the ever-evolving automotive world and new ones are developed to meet fresh challenges as they arise.
We know, however, that the value of standards lies in wide-scale adoption, so we make them freely available to the whole community.
