Why is the FMCG industry managing carbon

Carbon management is the process of tracking, analysing, and reducing your carbon emissions to protect your business and unlock commercial benefits.

Safeguard from regulation and raw materials risk

Not only are FMCG manufacturers subject to increasingly ambitious climate regulation, you’re also highly exposed to the physical risks associated with climate change. For example, heat stress and water scarcity have the potential to disrupt agricultural, fashion, and textile supply chains and cause price volatility. Being in the position to view the carbon emissions of your entire operations allows you to adjust your supply chain and mitigate this risk as much as possible.


Capture growing demand for sustainable goods

Demand for low-carbon goods offers significant revenue opportunities for the manufacturers that are able to authentically market products for this audience. Whether it’s plant-based meat alternatives or biodegradable personal care products, every brand wants to make the same sustainability claims. It will be those that have the most airtight data to back their claims that will capture this growing revenue.


Build reputation to ensure brand longevity

The battle for reputation is heated in FMCG. 75% of companies have directed M&A efforts towards the acquisition of niche, environmental brands in the last 5 years and this type of activity has more than quadrupled over that time. The brands that position themselves as the most sustainable choice today are carving out the market share of tomorrow.
