ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY

SCALA’s Supply Chain Environmental Sustainability team are passionate about the future of our planet and business ethics.  We are determined to combine these passions with our supply chain expertise to make a difference both in our own business activities and to ensure our clients are aware of the environmental sustainability impact of decisions they may be considering and to assist in their improvement path.

For Our Clients

Our research shows that while companies are now often measuring Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions, few have extended this into Scope 3 and the wider Supply Chain emissions.   These supply chain emissions are often more significant than the Scope 1 & 2 emissions but are much more difficult to measure and require real understanding and visibility of the supply chain complexities:

SCALA have undertaken a number of specific client projects looking at logistics operations carbon emissions and the environmental impact of future supply chain strategies including:

SCALA consultants ensure every project they undertake for their clients includes an environmental impact assessment which is presented in project conclusions alongside the key cost, service and flexibility implications

SCALA have partnered with Compare Your Footprint a leading software system which fully quantifies a company’s total carbon footprint. The system is kept fully up to date with the latest government emissions factors and  SCALA tailor the supply chain emissions module to handle the complexities enabling companies to both measure and improve their supply chain carbon footprint.

As an example of the approach SCALA has on sustainability and environmental logistics, the presentation below produced by senior consultant Catherine Weetman (a recognised leader in Supply Chain Environmental Consulting) for our conference in China addresses the concerns and challenges of enabling a clean, low-carbon world, and the impact of the emissions around the planet.
