Supply Chain Engagement

Embed sustainability across your value chain to achieve your net zero ambitions, mitigate risks and enhance your resilience.

What is Supply Chain Engagement?

As you strive for more sustainable business. It’s crucial to manage the impact across your entire supply chain. Why? Because up to 90% of emissions can occur within the value chain, highlighting the importance of supply chain transformation to your sustainability strategy and targets. In doing so, you can unlock the opportunities that a more sustainable supply chain brings.

How we help build a more sustainable, resilient supply chain

With our programme, you can access supplier emissions data, facilitate important conversations, and build capacity across your supply chain to reach net zero carbon emissions.

We will work with suppliers that make up 80% of the spend within your supply chain to collect data on an annual basis for carbon calculation. By having a comprehensive view of the supply chain, we can identify opportunities for emissions reductions, drive innovation and create a more sustainable and resilient value chain.We provide templates, guides and tools to help you determine where and how you can reduce emissions. Once you have completed the plan, our team of sustainability consultants will ensure the robustness of your carbon management plan and support you along the process.
