Whilst everyone is responsible, companies have the greatest potential for climate action. The major consumer industries (food, fashion and FMCG), for example, represent three of the top four most polluting sectors, accounting for around 35% of global emissions. Approximately 83% of those emissions come from their supply chains. In short, reducing the environmental impact of supply chains is critical in combatting climate change.
There are, however, roadblocks to reducing these emissions. One is the lack of accurate, usable data. Without this, businesses can't understand their environmental footprint and take action on it. There's also no universal language around definitions, causing confusion and slowing progress. And business-to-business sourcing continues to be fragmented, complex and increasingly global.
