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.

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
