REMAIN COMPETITIVE IN A LOW-CARBON ECONOMY

by | Aug 14, 2023 | All News, Latest News

In an inspiring move towards sustainability, Amazon has announced a ground-breaking initiative that will reshape the landscape of businesses and their supply chains. By requiring suppliers to report on emissions and set carbon goals, Amazon is paving the way for a greener future and demonstrating the vital importance of creating environmentally responsible supply chains.

As a global leader, Amazon’s commitment to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2040 sets a powerful example for businesses worldwide. Their acknowledgement that reducing carbon footprints extends beyond direct operational control highlights the need for collective action. Embracing a sustainable supply chain approach is a responsibility and an opportunity for businesses to contribute significantly to the fight against climate change.

By extending sustainable practices to suppliers, Amazon is fostering collaboration that drives real change. Together, businesses can innovate and make eco-friendly decisions that benefit us all.

Stella Pasalidou, Energy and Sustainability Consultant at Carbonxgen said “Businesses all around the country have started to work towards implementing their Net Zero Carbon strategies and, although strategies are tailored to the business’s sustainability ambition and ethos, there are some key projects that we see repeatedly in Net Zero Carbon strategies across different industries.

 One of the most critical and key Net Zero Carbon projects is decarbonising and influencing the supply chain. Such projects have the power to drive improvements and increase the accuracy of a business’s GHG emission inventory, as well as identify reduction opportunities across all three scopes – both of which are essential to becoming a Net Zero Carbon business.

 Carbonxgen is here to support businesses in their journey towards a greener, carbon-neutral future. Our team has been supporting clients in undertaking Supplier Engagement Programmes in line with the above objectives. We provide packaged services for GHG emission inventories, development of business level Net Zero Carbon strategies, and engagement with the supply chain.”
