Emission Factor

Air freight - RF effect unknown

0.956kgCO2e/usd

Emission factor summary

Emission intensity of supply chain (with margins i.e. cradle to shelf) in US dollars spend on: air transport/freight. This factor is representative of the described commodity (equivalent to a goods or services category) and was obtained from the USEEIO model. Refer to the source for the source-specific data quality assessment. NOTE: It is unknown if the radiative forcing (RF) effect that reflects the impact of contrails and high-altitude release of GHGs is included.
