Supply chains continue to dominate business conversations around climate change, and for good reason. After all, more than 90% of an organization’s greenhouse gas emissions are caused by supply chains, making them an area of intense focus.
But there is a silver lining – the number of businesses championing the circular business model is rising steadily. A Gartner study found that 70 percent of supply chain leaders are keen on investing in the circular economy.
So, how can businesses decarbonize their supply chains? The need of the hour for organizations is to adopt a multi-pronged approach to engage with suppliers on GHG emission standards. Technology will play a significant role in building sustainable and transparent supply chains, enabling access to credible sustainability metrics.
