3 Steps to Accelerate Scope 3 Carbon Emissions Reduction Goals in the Value Chain
Chief Supply Chain Officers (CSCOs) face a massive challenge when it comes to meeting ambitious GHG emission reduction targets due to insufficient data and lack of influence across value streams. In this report you will learn that:
- Stakeholder pressure and customer expectations for corporations to report on their supply chain Scope 3 impacts are increasing. Gartner found that 78% of supply chain leaders expect customers to prefer products that are sustainable across the end-to-end value chain, even if they cost more.
- Chief supply chain officers (CSCOs) often struggle to collect, manage and compare data on the impact of their supply chains, due to poor data availability, quality, and insufficient standards.
- Many companies have set ambitious science-based targets and/or have net-zero commitments, but struggle to deliver impact through their supply chain. This is due to a range of issues including business growth, lack of clear accountability and misalignment between buyer and supplier expectations.
While the above highlight the obstacles for companies, this report provides valuable and actionable recommendations that teams can begin implementing today.
