Growing numbers of businesses are committed to reducing their environmental impacts, slashing energy and resource costs at the same time as tackling climate risks.
But for all their good intentions, every business faces the same challenge: how do you reduce the environmental impacts of supply and value chains that stretch around the globe. As businesses from Apple to Walmart have found in recent years, you can have an impressive sustainability strategy, but its credentials are quickly undermined if your suppliers have environmental horror stories hidden in the closet.
Thankfully, progressive companies are increasingly aware of this challenge and are realising how emerging technologies can help them track the sustainability of their value chain, giving them crucial data on resource shortages, climate risks, and environmental under-performance. Armed with this data, they are also realising that it is possible to operate a genuinely green supply chain that is committed to reducing carbon emissions, water use, waste levels, and numerous other environmental metrics.
This report from CA offers best practice guidance on how ingraining a culture of visibility and accountability across the value chain, allows organisations to accelerate their sustainability change agenda.
