LLamasoft Inc. has added greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions modeling and optimization capabilities to its Supply Chain Guru network modeling solution. Designed to help companies reduce their impact on the environment and improve their "green" credentials, the new capabilities allow users to calculate their GHG footprint, determine where their GHG emissions can be reduced, and incorporate carbon offset purchases into their cost and footprint calculations. The new capabilities can be directly incorporated into all major network design activities, including site selection, sourcing, transportation, inventory, and production.
The Supply Chain Guru GHG model performs several types of analyses, including the calculation of an organization's existing carbon footprint based on the current supply chain network, and the determination of the most cost-effective supply chain network design based on user-defined greenhouse gas reduction targets.
