Download our new Supply Chain Target Setting White Paper


Supply Chain Footprint assessments are  becoming essential for business - particularly for large organisations that rely on numerous quantities of supplied goods and services. By assessing the environmental impact of your supply chain, you will be able to identify the major emissions sources to focus targets and develop supply chain/procurement procedures to reduce carbon emissions.

The methodology to assess  the carbon emissions associated with a supply chain footprint follows best practice such as the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol and UK government guidelines. Where data is not available, emissions can be modelled using annual spend allocated by Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) codes for goods and services. 

Supply Chain Footprint Target Setting is becoming a necessity and we are now helping many clients to forecast emissions out to 2050, using passive and active scenario models.



Supply Chain Footprint assessments can be great additions to company Carbon Footprint Appraisals to give you a better understanding of your Scope 3 emissions and help you to go above and beyond with your carbon management. As well as this, it can help with compliance with the Carbon Disclosure Project, allowing you to answer "Yes" to questions in section C12. Engagement.
