“Supply Chain a Carbon Target”
In the September 29 issue of The Australian, Booz & Company Senior Associate Greg Lavery (Australia) said while the Australian Government continues its consultations on a proposed emissions trading scheme, British companies have begun looking for creative ways to reduce their carbon footprint by reducing energy use in their supply chains. “In a carbon-constrained environment, energy-efficiency measures represent the low-hanging fruit for companies wanting to reduce any direct emissions liability or exposure to rising energy prices,” Lavery said. “(Supply chains offer) “surprising distortions or anomalies that open up the potential for deep cuts in the emissions footprint.”
