Conscious consumers and legal requirements such as ESG reporting are increasingly calling on companies to decarbonize the entire value chain. However, many businesses have so far only monitored their SCOPE-1 and SCOPE-2 emissions: direct CO2 emissions within their own company and indirect emissions from energy suppliers. Meanwhile, the SCOPE-3 emissions of the supply chain are still insufficiently recorded. We present a number of examples to show where companies can start and what measures they can take.
Consumers and politicians are increasingly demanding compliance with ecological standards within the supply chain. But how can they implement their strategies and reduce CO2 emissions in the supply chain? We provide answers.
To ensure long-term competitiveness, companies must integrate ecological and social criteria into their target systems and their decisions. So where can companies start? Anna Schuldt, business analyst and sustainability expert at Hermes International, advises those in charge to be anything, but afraid of the task.
