Accelerating the transition to renewable energy is central to reversing climate change. Thousands of companies act and are switching to renewables for their own electricity consumption. Recognising that emissions located in the supply chain are on average 5.5 times as high as those from direct operations, supply chain focus is increasing.
ECOHZ has developed a Supply Chain Portal for Renewable Energy. The portal enables companies to involve their suppliers through a simplified procurement process of Energy Attribute Certificates (EACs) across the GO, REC and I-REC standards to match the regional electricity consumption.
Achieve zero emission supply chain through ECOHZ Supply Chain Portal for Renewable Energy
- Configures, hosts and operates a portal where your suppliers can purchase renewable energy
- Handles information flow and transactions directly with your suppliers
- Educates procurement teams about benefits of switching to renewables
- Provides documentation for your Greenhouse Gas Protocol Scope 3 reporting
A company’s supply chain emissions are on average 5.5 times those of their direct operations.
Through the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) more than 800 companies have submitted their Science Based Targets to SBTi. The SBT criteria have increased focus on Scope 3 emissions, with specific requirements for companies with 40% or more of their value chain emissions in Scope 3. Typically, the bulk of these emissions are related to the supply chain, thus engaging with their suppliers becomes key to having SBTs approved and reaching the targets.
Changing Energy Behaviour – ECOHZ’ vision guides everything we do. Facilitating lower supply chain emissions for our existing and new customers adds weight to our commitment and accelerates our customers’ sustainability results.
