Addressing emissions in your supply chain

This Addressing Emissions in Your Supply Chain factsheet offers guidance to organisations on preventing the worst impacts of climate change and how climate-related risk can be reduced.

Decarbonising your supply chain

Global supply chains are vast, dynamic and interdependent. As shown by the COVID-19 pandemic, globally disruptive events are no longer confined to specific geographies, but have widespread consequences that can be felt across the globe. Coupled with global mega-trends, such as climate change, extreme weather events, increasing resource constraints and changing consumer habits, businesses must take a new approach to ensure supply chains are sustainable.
