What is Carbon-Neutral Supply Chain?

Carbon Neutral or Net Zero Carbon supply chain is a term used to describe a supply chain enterprise that has made conscious and committed efforts towards eliminating its carbon footprint. While supply chains are predominantly dependent on transportation and fuel in some form or another, carbon-neutral companies strive to balance out the carbon emissions caused by them with an equivalent amount of carbon savings elsewhere.

Business activities have a direct impact on all aspects of climate change. Supply chain enterprises nowadays are therefore becoming more environmentally conscious and adopting green logistics systems in order to reduce the negative impact of transportation, shipping, packaging, and distribution activities on the environment.

How to build a carbon-neutral supply chain?

  • Set carbon neutrality and carbon management strategies in your enterprise
  • Calculate, track and audit your carbon footprint on a regular basis
  • Implementing cost-effective carbon reduction practices such as green logistics, green packaging, etc.
  • Follow ethical and sustainable sourcing practices in your supply chain
  • Spread awareness among your employees, business groups, and customers about your commitment towards a carbon-neutral supply chain
