AI-Driven E-liability Knowledge Graphs: A Comprehensive Framework for Supply Chain Carbon Accounting and Emissions Liability Management
Keywords:Artificial Intelligence (AI), E-Liability, Knowledge Graphs, Carbon Accounting, Emissions Liability Management
AbstractWhile carbon accounting plays a fundamental role in our fight against climate change, it is not without its challenges. We begin the paper with a critique of the conventional carbon accounting practices, after which we proceed to introduce the E-liability carbon accounting methodology and Emissions Liability Management (ELM) originally proposed by Kaplan and Ramanna, highlighting their strengths. Recognizing the immense value of this novel approach for real-world carbon accounting improvement, we introduce a novel data-driven integrative framework that leverages AI and computation, the E-Liability Knowledge Graph framework, to achieve real-world implementation of the E-liability carbon accounting methodology. In addition to providing a path-to-implementation, our proposed framework brings clarity to the complex environmental interactions within supply chains, thus enabling better informed and more responsible decision-making. We analyze the implementation aspects of this framework and conclude with a discourse on the role of this AI-aided knowledge graph in ensuring the transparency and decarbonization of global supply chains.
