Determining the structural positions and characteristics of multi-role sectors is critical for understanding supply chain networks. Thus, in this study, we developed an attribution analysis framework to assess the structure of sectors with multiple roles in a supply chain. Subsequently, we applied the framework in a case study, where the top-ranking Japanese sectors were identified for production-oriented, betweenness-oriented, and consumption-oriented carbon dioxide emission scores. Additionally, these attribution indicators were utilized to identify/visualize the structural positions of sectors. Using company-level data, we also evaluated the structural positions of Japanese companies in relation to their carbon disclosure project (CDP) reporting practices. The results demonstrate that a company's role in the supply chain is unlikely to be related to CDP reporting.
