A major European retailer with 800+ stores in France aimed to improve their Scope 3 emissions estimate by analyzing their product lineup's environmental impact. Understanding the importance of identifying and reducing emissions across their supply chain and product lifecycle, they sought help from Carbon Maps to tackle this intricate challenge.
Carbon Maps embarked on a comprehensive project that spanned just over 5 months and involved a dedicated team of six experts from both the client's Purchasing and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) business units. The project was aimed at evaluating the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions impact of ~10,000 private label products and more than 250 product categories. Additionally, Carbon Maps analyzed the GHG footprint of over 700 suppliers within the client's network.
Based on data gathered and calculations made on the platform, Carbon Maps identified a potential 30% reduction in emissions within the client’s most emissive product categories. Furthermore, a significant milestone was reached when Carbon Maps collaborated with the client's suppliers to develop specific emissions factors for their dairy products.
