Abstract : Make supply chain greener and reduce their carbon emissions is a growing issue for businesses. Among the different activities of supply chains, transportation is one that emits the most greenhouse gases. Whereas transportation, and more specifically road freight, is one of the main contributors of European greenhouse gases emissions, it is one of the only sector whose emissions continue to growth. This paper proposes a study at a micro-economic scale of the estimation of the carbon footprint of a road freight company in 2009. The main objectives are twofold: identifying the main emissions sources and finding the best solutions for a greener supply chains.
