Making Supply Chain Net Zero

Customer Challenge

In today’s increasingly environmentally conscious world, many companies are striving to make their supply chains more sustainable by reducing their carbon emissions. Achieving the ambitious goal of Net Zero or Net Positive emissions, however, is a complex and challenging endeavor that requires meticulous evaluation and collaboration with all stakeholders involved in the supply chain.

  1. Diverse Supply Chain Networks: Most companies operate within intricate supply chain networks, often involving multiple tiers of suppliers and intermediaries. Identifying the exact sources of carbon emissions throughout this web of relationships is no small feat.
  2. Data Collection and Accuracy: Accurate data collection is fundamental to understanding a supply chain’s carbon footprint. This requires cooperation from all suppliers, who may have varying degrees of data availability and reliability.
  3. Scope of Emissions: Carbon emissions are classified into three scopes: Scope 1 (direct emissions), Scope 2 (indirect emissions from purchased energy), and Scope 3 (indirect emissions from the entire value chain). Scope 3 emissions, often the largest component, can be particularly challenging to quantify due to their complexity.
  4. Regulatory and Reporting Frameworks: Compliance with diverse regional and global regulations adds another layer of complexity. Different jurisdictions have varying reporting requirements, making uniform assessment a challenging task.
