Working with our suppliers to minimise our environmental impact

With our 2020 goal to solely use renewable energy sources now in sight, we're expanding our focus to include indirect emissions. That's why we're working with our suppliers and partners to reduce CO2 emissions and become more energy efficient.

Reducing our indirect carbon footprint

Reducing our indirect carbon footprint

Since 2014 we’ve been incorporating impact assessments across our value chain, pinpointing areas that need improvement. This includes our partner collaboration programme, which continues to grow in popularity among our suppliers since it launched in 2017.

Our approach to curbing emissions

To reduce our indirect emissions means starting at the beginning: identifying suppliers who share our Circular for Zero mindset.

Factors include everything from ensuring they have the infrastructure to properly dispose of waste, wastewater, or air emissions, all the way to the supplier documenting and disclosing any use of conflict minerals.

Circular Supply 

While more than half the raw materials we source are sustainable, our upstream supply chain is still responsible for more than 90% of our CO2 emissions. To implement circular procurement procedures throughout the value chain and expand our zero carbon programme, we need to collaborate with suppliers, sharing innovation and environmental knowledge to reduce their carbon footprint.
