Lowering supply chain carbon emissions with advanced data capabilities

In a world where sustainability has become a staple concern, consumers are looking to businesses to lower their carbon emissions. As 23% of total greenhouse gas emissions are a result of transportation, starting with your supply chain is the perfect opportunity to become more sustainable. But in a complex market, how can you lower carbon emissions and how can you monitor your success?

Enhancing your supply chain data capabilities can give you a holistic view of your carbon footprint and provide you with the data you need to make improvements.

Carbon data can benefit carbon reduction strategies

Continuous tracking of data can help you to establish a baseline of your carbon output, making it easier to identify causes of higher emissions. This also helps you to understand where you are and identify how to get to your sustainability goal. With carbon data, you can define strategies for reducing emissions without compromising the performance of your supply chain. Some strategies could include:

  • Consolidation of shipments
  • Optimisation of low-carbon routes
  • Reduction of dwell time

Extracting quality data helps you to action strategies

A platform that aligns with globally-recognised methodologies such as GLEC framework and ICAO, provides you with accurate and reliable carbon emissions measurements. When you can trust the data, you can confidently make informed decisions to maintain supply chain success while working towards sustainability goals. You can also ensure that you are in accordance with established standards such as GHG Protocol and ISO 14000.

CO2 measurement allows you to make smarter decisions

By aggregating emissions data to provide CO2 measurements across every trade lane, supplier and product, you have full visibility over carbon emissions per shipment. This allows you to:

  • Reduce carbon emissions
  • Monitor sustainability goals
  • Make data-driven decisions.

Advanced platforms, such as Zencargo’s, provide you with these data capabilities to make better, more sustainable choices.

How to mitigate carbon emissions in your supply chain

By Zencargo

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
