6. Climate related supply-chain reporting toolkit  

Many UK businesses want to reduce their carbon emissions and tap into the potential business growth that could result from being part of a sustainable supply chain - but they find emissions reporting a challenge.

Our free toolkit, developed in partnership with carbon-management experts Cogo, might be able to help.

We joined forces with Cogo with a mission to support small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in their pivotal role in the UK’s decarbonisation journey.

The result is an easy-to-use guide that provides information on how businesses might measure, understand, and reduce their carbon consumption. Businesses that begin carbon reduction journeys could experience potential costs savings too.
