The benefits of reduced emissions
There are many CO2 reduction measures, each with a distinct impact on your supply chain. They range from fundamental changes in the product portfolio to the strategic reorganization of your supply chain network and infrastructure.
Implementing sustainability improvement measures not only results in a reduced carbon footprint, but also creates an enhanced commercial proposition based on sustainable values. In turn, this can support your brand positioning and competitiveness.
Recent success stories include that of a major European retailer who was able to enhance its reputation by eliminating 17 million miles from the supply chain, thereby exceeding its target of a 10% reduction in emissions four years ahead of schedule.
Switching transport modes from airfreight to an air-ocean mix allowed a global medical device manufacturer to achieve a 15% reduction in CO2 and 32% reduction in transportation costs.
Focused analyses can determine your company’s optimal transport mix based on product characteristics and service requirements, thereby reducing both emissions and costs.
