Cut complexity and improve the transparency of your route to net zero

Sustainability is a complex, dynamic stakeholder environment and decarbonization is a global imperative for every industry. Yet COP26 has highlighted that companies are not on track to deliver Net Zero, and a dramatic shift from strategic intent to action and results is needed.

AlixPartners’ Should-Carbon methodology and toolkit cuts through the complexity of calculating and actioning carbon reduction, making it easier to measure, map and reduce supplier carbon.

Most organizations will have baselines and plans in place to improve their directly controllable Scope 1 & 2 emissions. However, the biggest challenge they face in effectively managing carbon reduction is in their supply chain – typically categorized as Scope 3 and driven by ‘upstream’ suppliers.

Should-Carbon translates carbon measurement into actionable plans at each stage of category planning, procurement and supplier management processes. This practical and pragmatic approach accelerates cross-business decision-making to mobilize, speed up and scale carbon reduction initiatives with an organization’s supplier base.

The road to decarbonization is challenging, involves detailed operational thinking and commitment to new ways of working. Now is the time to accelerate your journey to Net Zero with Should-Carbon.
