We have now entered the ‘decisive decade’ and it is time for companies to take sustainable action now. To avoid global temperature rises of above 1.5°C, CO2 emissions need to reach net zero by 2050 and to be cut in half within the next decade.
The aftermath of COP26 has prompted governments to make climate pledges, and taught businesses and consumers all over the world that sustainability is essential in order to create a resilient future. Companies are beginning to create change by aligning their business goals to sustainable frameworks such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Agreement.
A recent survey by the United Nations shows that companies rank supply chains as the biggest challenge to improve their sustainability performance. But after such a volatile year for the supply chain industry, tackling another major challenge may be quite daunting. However, businesses can use this an opportunity to create resilience in their supply chains.
Recognising the potential sustainability can bring to supply chains, we have created a ‘How To’ guide on ‘Cutting CO2 from the supply chain’.
From addressing the challenges and identifying the opportunities, this guide walks through:
- Why cutting carbon emissions makes commercial sense
- How stakeholders through the business can benefit
- Creating the foundations of a sustainable supply chain
- How business can create an action plan to cut carbon emissions
