- Analysis phase: We analyze your transport and company data and calculate emissions.
- Set objectives: We analyze decarbonization and technology pathways and set fields of action, strategic qualities, and GHG reduction potential (KPIs).
- Solutions: We develop measures for transport decarbonization (incl. feasibility) and discuss collaborative approaches with suppliers and pilot projects.
- Concept: We prioritize measures, set up a roadmap (costs, benefits, responsibilities, etc.) and define the use of carbon offsets.
- Implementation: We help you to integrate the measures into a roadmap, adopt policies and support the communication, monitoring and verification.

Ensuring a green supply chain involves implementing sustainability practices throughout the entire supply chain process, from the sourcing of raw materials to the final delivery of the product to the customer. Due to CSRD and other regulations, the supply chain is increasingly becoming the focus of regulatory attention. This significantly expands the scope of responsibility for companies. Our experience shows that sustainability in the supply chain, while complex, can produce remarkable results. The best thing you can do is to get this work started early enough.
