Carbon Emissions

Investors, policy makers, NGOs and consumers increasingly request
businesses to become carbon neutral. Given the current trajectory towards
a “3 degree” scenario, effective and fast action is necessary.

Measuring Carbon emissions from your supply chain

More and more companies have set reduction targets, not only for direct and energy related emissions (scope1+2) but also for their supply chain: The supply chain makes up the largest share of scope 3 emissions (about 70% for OEMs and retailers). However, it is challenging to quantify emissions from the supply chain.

For companies with ambitious reduction targets, tracking progress based on estimations is not enough. Companies need to measure GHG emissions based on facts, allowing them to tackle issues and implement corrective actions. Identifying suppliers and sub-suppliers in the upstream supply chain is crucial for collaboration with the major contributors and to decrease the supply chain footprint.

How we can support you

With the sustainabill cloud platform, you can map your carbon intense supply chains down to the commodity or raw material level where possible. Based in the mapped supply chain network you can then identify carbon hotspots, collect granular data from upstream suppliers and collaborate with stakeholders to implement improvements.

Our approach

  1. Scope definition and supply chain mapping
  2. Identification of carbon hotspots in your supply chain network
  3. Collection of granular data, allowing a fact-based measurement of carbon emissions
  4. Collaboration to implement efficiency measures in your supply chain
  5. Scope 3 reporting and amortisation of carbon emissions

Example: Automotive industry

In the automotive industry, OEMS are increasingly requesting sustainability data from suppliers, and sub-suppliers to achieve a holistic life cycle assessment. The data must be provided in a specified format (VDA data collection format). With sustainabill, such data requests can be sent to all relevant supply chain actors who can efficiently enter and share their data.

Our partner to evaluate scope and method is the Wuppertal Institute.
