Small Steps Towards Sustainability for a Big Impact
Studies indicate that Scope 3 emissions, which occur along a company’s supply chain, can account for 65% to 90% of total emissions. To help combat the effects of climate change, brands of all sizes, across industries, are identifying solutions to “green” their supply chain processes.
For many small and mid-sized companies that lack the resources, tools and in-house expertise, the path towards sustainability can feel daunting.
