Drivers for Carbon Action Have
Never Been Stronger

Growing sustainability concerns from investors, increased demands from customers and industry peers, a surge in new climate change regulations, and massive global shifts in public opinion have put unprecedented pressure on businesses to act.

Science-based reduction targets
and GHG regulatory reporting
often include Scope 3 emissions

Emissions transparency is requested at product level

The Complex Challenge of Scope 3 Reduction

Companies are committed to ambitious reduction targets, and collaboration between value chain partners is critical to build capability, get an accurate baseline, and take meaningful actions. 60% of global emissions are generated by supply chains, yet less than 15% are reporting on carbon due to lack of resources or capability to get started. Engaging with suppliers at various maturity levels and collecting carbon data instead of using estimates continues to be a complex challenge.


  • Challenges in identifying high-risk suppliers
  • Little access to supply chain carbon primary data
  • Lack of transparency or assurance of data quality
  • Difficulty keeping suppliers engaged
  • Difficulty keeping up with evolving regulatory environment


  • Difficulty making long-term commitments
  • Lack of time and resources
  • Lack of carbon management maturity
  • Lack of capability to measure and report emissions

The Limitations of Typical Approaches

Manual data collection is time consuming and error prone

86% still record emissions manually using spreadsheets

Supply chain complexity makes engagement difficult

150+ categories and 100+ countries in the average supply chain makes it hard to scale a centralized supplier engagement strategy for GHG management

Estimates and benchmarks lead to inaccurate baseline and progress tracking

14% reduced emissions in line with their ambitions because most lack access to primary data

Treating program as a one-time engagement

66% hire consultants and lack the expertise to cope with increased scrutiny in sustainability
