  author={Bernard and Killian and Lloyd and Rivera and M{\'e}lissa and Soto and David and Navichoc},
  journal={Journal of Agricultural Science and Technology},
The issue of carbon emissions has been on the corporate sustainability agenda for some years. For those working in agricultural supply chains, the challenges remain significant, given the diverse direct and indirect emissions occurring throughout the value chain. This study determines the carbon footprint of the supply chain of Costa Rican coffee exported to Europe, using best practice methodology to calculate greenhouse gas emissions. Overall, it was found that the total carbon footprint… Expand
