What are we doing about our suppliers’ emissions?
Scope 3 carbon emissions represent the largest share of the carbon we are responsible for.
With several thousand suppliers feeding our business, we understand that our carbon responsibilities don’t stop with us and it’s important to work with our suppliers to reduce emissions.
Suppliers emissions are not under our direct control and are hard to tackle, but we are making efforts to address them by:
• Identifying opportunities for reductions
The results of our scope 3 impacts research enable us to identify the products and suppliers we should prioritise in our effort to reduce suppliers’ emissions.
• Encouraging knowledge sharing
We are committed to engage with our suppliers and help them share knowledge and environmental best practice.
• Being open and transparent
We feel it’s important to be open about our emissions and environmental impacts. In the past two years we were one of a small number of companies that voluntarily reported on all three CDP (formerly Carbon Disclosure Project) disclosures: Carbon, Water and Forestry.
