Understanding the impact of supply chain carbon footprint will help companies prepare for the imminent regulatory
environment and explore long term cost saving opportunities.

Why should procurement pay attention to green practices?

Carbon cost pass-through from suppliers

With the number of carbon regulated markets increasing, suppliers around the world will face additional carbon costs. In Australia, the recently introduced carbon tax has already shown increase of energy prices to as high as 20 - 25%. Suppliers will pass on this additional cost to companies.


Supply chain emissions

For most Fortune 500 or G-2000 organizations, over 75% of product related emissions occur outside their operational boundary. Suppliers with high carbon footprint are exposed to risk of increased operational cost and could even face shutdown due to stringent regulatory cap on emissions and energy.

With easy opportunities to mitigate procurement costs already explored, organizations that include Green measures into procurement metrics today will gain significant long term economic and environmental differentiators over competition. It will also help in shifting the focus of procurement from short term cost advantages to long term sustainable differentiators.

Beroe’s experience has shown that procurement professionals
face some common challenges in integrating ‘Green’ into
their procurement strategies

Comparative carbon footprint

Do you know the benchmark carbon footprint of your supplies and products?
