China’s carbon trading to capture supply chain emissions

https://uk.news.yahoo.com/china-emissions-trading-scheme-puts-170005461.html

The carbon intensity of Australia’s exports to China will come under increasing scrutiny when its Emissions Trading Scheme is launched this year, joining moves both planned and already underway by a host of other Asian countries.

Scope 3 emissions, such as transport & distribution, are generated outside an organisation’s direct control and are often the largest part of their emissions. Exposure to highly carbon-intensive products and supply chains will meet an explicit price signal that could harm the competitiveness of Australian products, and needs our increasing attention.
