Supplementary notes

*The source provides the followed example for calculating emissions "For its ‘goods in’, it knows the mass of items shipped to the UK by cargo ship, since this is on the delivery dockets. It knows which country the goods are being shipped from so it can work out the km travelled during import. Company O takes the tonnage and multiplies it by the distance travelled to achieve a value. It then multiplies by the appropriate cargo ship factor for its ship type (in this case, ‘general cargo, unknown’). This provides the emissions for the ‘goods in’."
