This report showcases the opportunity that all companies have for huge climate impact through action to decarbonise global supply chains. 

Addressing supply-chain emissions enables many customer-facing companies to impact a volume of emissions several times higher than they could if they were to focus on decarbonising their own direct operations and power consumption alone – and achieving a net-zero supply chain is possible with very limited additional costs.

Key findings:

  1. Many companies can multiply their climate impact by decarbonising supply chains
  2. Eight supply chains account for more than 50% of global emissions
  3. Net-zero supply chains would hardly increase end-consumer costs
  4. Decarbonising supply chains is hard.
