Gaining transparency in your supply chain emissions
Sustainability is a crucial challenge for businesses in the 21st century. It requires not only reducing the environmental impact of their operations but also ensuring the transparency and accountability of their supply chains.
Calculating emissions is a key step for achieving transparency in support of meeting sustainability goals and complying with regulations. However, different methods and data sources can lead to different results and uncertainties. Following a structured approach and disclosing the assumptions, methodologies, emission factors, and data quality used for calculating emissions is key to building trust. This should be supported by appropriate tools that facilitate the collection and analysis of the data with best-of-breed not always being best-fit from a cost-benefit perspective.
In this White Paper, we provide an overview of calculation schemes and our structured approach to achieving quantitative transparency over a company’s value chain.
