As a supply chain professional, emissions are probably the part of sustainability that most sits within your power. Which is also probably very frustrating for you, since they’re by far the most complicated to calculate. Before you can find a way to reduce them, you first of all need to know how to measure them.
Obviously, not all of that will fall under your remit. But the parts of emissions that fall under your umbrella, particularly logistics, can be measured. Albeit with some challenges.
More importantly, once you have the data from calculating your emissions, you can use it to drive sustainability outcomes, identifying hot spots, taking the needed actions to reduce emissions, and setting realistic, science-based targets for the future, so that your supply chain has a positive impact on reducing your business’ emissions.
