Supply Chain Carbon Coalition to Hold Inaugural Meeting in Brussels

Share Article

eyefortransport is hosting the inaugural discussions of the Supply Chain Carbon Coalition Steering Committee in Brussels on March 17th, 2009. Confirmed participants in this pioneering discussion include supply chain executives from Asda/Wal-Mart, Nestle, Johnson Controls, Toyota, Vestas, Cognis and more.

Addressing the environmental impact of supply chains is increasingly recognised as one of the core issues for business. The purpose of the Supply Chain Carbon Coalition is to help companies move forward with green supply chain initiatives with the confidence that what you're doing is consistent with industry standards, credible, and can be communicated to partners, suppliers and customers in a way they will understand.

WHAT?
eyefortransport, in cooperation with leading corporations and global institutes, is designing a higher standard for corporate environmental initiatives. The Supply Chain Carbon Coalition is a voluntary association of the world's leading manufacturers, retailers, logistics companies, freight forwarders, 3PLs, suppliers, government representatives, academics and other relevant parties.

The Coalition provides strength in numbers - the confidence that the environmental initiatives that you are investing in and reporting, and the goals you are committing to publically, have been endorsed and meet a standard being used by a large group of similar companies with millions of euros of spend behind them.

WHY?
The ultimate goal of the Coalition is to write and endorse the Supply Chain Carbon Coalition Pact, a declaration that will clearly codify a higher standard for corporate environmental ethics and transparency. The Pact will declare that all members (a) affirm an unequivocal dedication to corporate environmental responsibility and (b) play an instrumental role in restoring and growing investor confidence in environmentally sustainable businesses and markets worldwide.

Taking part in the preliminary discussions is a unique opportunity to meet the leaders in supply chain environmental responsibility so that, together, you can increase your commitment in greening your supply chain and be credible in front of your customers, employees and stakeholders.

WHERE & WHEN?
The inaugural meeting will take place as part of the 2nd Sustainable Supply Chain Summit in Brussels on March 17-18 2009. Your participation in these talks is informal, does not commit you to anything at this stage, and is intended to help underpin future Coalition actions and motivations.
