Supply Chain Emissions Reduction

The chain-leading enterprise drives value chain companies to share emissions reductions, which will be crucial for global climate change

What is Scope 3 (supply chain) emissions

According to the GHG Protocol, corporate carbon emissions can be categorized into direct emissions (Scope 1, such as fuel combustion), indirect emissions (Scope 2, such as purchased electricity), and other indirect emissions associated with the upstream and downstream activities in the supply chain (Scope 3, including purchased goods and services, transportation and distribution, business travel, and employee commuting).

While many companies have taken steps to reduce Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions, approximately 70-90% of greenhouse gas emissions come from Scope 3 upstream and downstream supply chain activities. Therefore, reducing emissions in the supply chain is crucial for companies to achieve long-term carbon goals, and neglecting supply chain emissions can hinder the realization of these goals.

The traditional supply chain management is facing challenges

  • Long and complex chain

    A company often has thousands of suppliers, making the chain long, complex, and challenging to integrate carbon data across the entire chain

  • Sensitive data and difficult collection

    Obtaining reliable carbon emission results requires suppliers to provide production data, and collecting sensitive information is challenging

  • Broad scope and difficult verification

    Companies struggle to independently manage the vast data from each supplier, compromising the transparency and reliability of the data

  • Slow progress and tracking difficulties

    Communicating data details and progress across multiple tiers of the supply chain leads to challenges in uniformly monitoring and tracking suppliers' progress in real time.

Platform + Service Breaking through the challenges in the supply chain

CarbonNewture's self-developed digital management platform and professional services are dedicated to helping clients solve the pain points in supply chain management.

Supplier Management System (CarbonNewture's digital management platform)
  • End-to-end

    Breaking the data isolation between upstream and downstream in the supply chain, providing a comprehensive supply chain carbon reduction service with "one-touch access and strict traceability", capable of managing a large number of multi-tier suppliers in a one-stop manner.
  • Secure and reliable

    As a medium for communication of data between upstream and downstream, the platform always prioritizes technical confidentiality and data security to prevent the leakage of sensitive supplier data. The circulated carbon data is verified by a third party, ensuring data compliance and security.
  • Data transparency

    Using technologies such as blockchain, the platform ensures the security, reliability, and transparency of corporate carbon data while achieving end-to-end traceability and verification of upstream and downstream carbon emission data.
  • Efficiency

    Collaborating with suppliers online to enhance process efficiency, effortlessly obtaining decision-making carbon reports, and visualizing data.
