Because it is UNCORRECTED material, please consider the following text as a useful but insufficient proxy for the authoritative book pages.

APPENDIX B WORKSHOP MATERIALS B-1

Instructions: For each comparison between criteria you are asked to decide whether the criteria in column A or column B is more important. Place an A or B in the more important column after making your selection. Next, you must decide the relative intensity of the importance of your choice. This is a numerical score, and an explanation of the values is shown in the table below. If you believe the criteria are of equal importance place either A or B in the more important column and a value of 1 in the intensity column to indicate equal importance. Repeat this procedure for each of the 10 pairwise comparisons. Example: If you believe that Comparability is moderately more important than Breadth, then in the pairwise comparison you would select B as more important with an intensity of 3. If you believe Depth should be very strongly favored over Verifiability, then you would select A as more important with an intensity of 7. Criteria A Criteria B More Important Intensity of Importance Breadth Comparability B 3 Depth Verifiability A 7 B-2

Breadth Low High A focus on only one mode of transport. All modes of transport and supporting logistics activities. Comparability Low High Firms may choose different system boundaries, sources of data, or report results in non- standard ways. All firms report in a standard format with identical system boundaries, methods, and data. Depth Low High Only direct (Scope 1) emissions are included. Full life cycle assessment including direct emissions, upstream fuel production, infrastructure, and capital goods. Precision Low High Global averages or aggregate carbon emissions reporting Shipment level reporting Verifiability Low High No checks are performed to verify calculations and little to no data is made publicly available. Results have been audited and verified by a neutral 3rd party and all data is publicly available for review. B-4

TRB’s National Cooperative Freight Research Program (NCFRP) Web-Only Document 5: Carbon Footprint of Supply Chains: A Scoping Study defines a standardized, conceptual approach to assessing global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of the transportation component of supply chains, critiques current methods and data used to quantify greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and outlines a work plan to develop a decision tool to help estimate the carbon footprint of the transportation component of supply chains.
