Large organisations compelling supply chains to reduce their emissions

Small or unprepared organisations might find their clients’ demands challenging.

As organisations grow and their operations become more complex, so do their supply chains. In 2019, CDP’s supply chain report revealed that, among CDP respondents, supply chain emissions tend to be five and a half times greater than operational emissions. The 2020 edition of the same report revised the estimate significantly thanks to improvements in emissions accounting across supply chains. CDP respondents today estimate that their supply chain emissions are more than eleven times greater than their operational emissions.

OPEC Agrees to Increase Output Gradually During 2021

180th OPEC Conference & 12th OPEC and Non-OPEC Ministerial Meeting – 3rd December 2020

In spite of the pandemic, OPEC would still like to celebrate its sixtieth anniversary, and like all long-term relationships, attitudes change and for OPEC, so too do partners. There is always talk of discord in the relationship and that it is on the verge of collapse, but reality always kicks in as the members realise that without the support of each other, and particularly the main players, their voices would never be heard, individual policies would falter, and they would lose any sense of direction.

Don’t Delay Your CCA

Government gives green light to those eligible to save money and set course for net zero

For any business with eligible processes and plans to reduce energy or carbon emissions, applying for a Climate Change Agreement (CCA) should be a no-brainer.

The government has published its response to the consultation on an extension to the current scheme for CCAs, which relieve eligible energy-intensive users from most of the costs of the Climate Change Levy (CCL). The consultation outlined proposals to extend the scheme by two years and open it up to new entrants, allowing eligible facilities not currently participating to apply to join in 2021. The consultation received 101 responses, which fed into the final decision-making.
