U.S. carbon emissions spike in 2018 on industry, fuel demand

U.S. carbon emissions spike in 2018 on industry, fuel demand | Sustainable Procurement News | Scoop.it

U.S. emissions of carbon dioxide, the main greenhouse gas, spiked last year after falling for the previous three, as cold weather spurred natural gas demand for heating and as the economy pushed planes and trucks to guzzle fuel, an estimate released on Tuesday showed. The Rhodium Group, an independent research group, said emissions rose 3.4 percent in 2018, the biggest jump since 2010, when the economy bounced back from the Great Recession.

EcoVadis's insight:

The environmental impact of a company is a growing concern for many customers, so keeping your carbon footprint low is important for your bottom line as well as protecting the natural world. Cutting your emissions will also usually mean a cost saving, meaning your profit margins will be higher.
