Podcast #2: Supply Chain and Value Chain GHG Management
We discuss the merits of using a corporate value chain framework for managing and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Michael asks tough questions while Don brings answers from his experience as a partner in EY’s supply chain practice and as author of the Institute’s forthcoming course on corporate value chain (Scope 3) GHG reporting. Anecdotes are used to explain why a value chain approach is working for measuring and how some leading companies are making progress. Some of the stories are:
- Procter & Gamble redesigns its laundry detergent to deliver cleaning performance in cold water, rather than hot or warm, reducing energy consumption and GHGs.
- Wal-Mart chose a supply chain framework for its goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 20 million metric tons by 2015.
- Edwin Keh (formerly at Wal-Mart) presents The Business Case for Sustainability in the Supply Chainat The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and recounts his experience implementing improvements with suppliers.
- The Hawthorne Effect explains why some improvements can be realized just by paying attention
