Manage Value Chain Emissions and Drive Sustainable Supply Chains


Procurement and Supply Chain teams are essential players in the race to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions, specifically Scope 3 carbon emissions. With over 75%* of total emissions being from an organization’s value chain, businesses must look to suppliers to build a more sustainable supply chain. But how can they embark on this journey?

Establish a Transparent Baseline and Set Reduction Targets

With Ivalua’s Environmental Impact Center (EIC), organizations can build meaningful and transparent emission reduction initiatives. By utilizing reliable data to generate emission baselines and collaborating with suppliers, the EIC is committed to creating a sustainable supply chain. This allows Procurement and Supply Chain departments an important opportunity to contribute to corporate sustainability goals.
