An enterprise’s Scope 3 emissions account for about 80% of its total greenhouse gas emissions. However, there appears to be a disconnect, as only about a quarter of supply chain and procurement leaders are prioritizing Scope 3 emissions reduction initiatives, where they can make the most overall impact, in the coming year.
GEP and North Carolina State University conducted a study of 250 supply chain and procurement leaders from the U.S. and Europe to examine the state of supply chain sustainability. The paper — Driving Supply Chain Sustainability in the Face of Disruptions and Cost Pressures — explores this sustainability disconnect and other results as well as examines how leaders are approaching the challenging balance of meeting sustainability goals while reducing costs amid disruption and spending pressures.
This paper is a must-read for leaders who are looking to make a greater impact on their ESG goals while containing costs.
