Supply Chain & International Collaboration
Empowering large energy buyers and their suppliers with the resources necessary to streamline clean energy procurement across national and global supply chains.
Large renewable energy buyers, like multi-national corporations, have long championed renewable energy as a means to reduce greenhouse gas emissions across operations and facilities. Recognizing the power of a market demand signal, the number of corporations setting supply chain, or scope 3, emissions reductions goals has steadily increased with the recognition that emissions extend beyond the built environment to a company’s products and services.
Reducing scope 3 emissions can be a daunting task – from determining where to begin the journey, to identifying the value chain areas with greatest emissions reductions potential, to engaging suppliers and relevant partners – but the opportunity for impact is immense. Supply chain emissions are 11.4 times greater than a company’s direct operations, so it’s vital to effectively engage supply chain partners to set emissions targets, source sustainable materials, and report impacts.
