Emitwise attends Gartner’s Supply Chain Symposium

In June, Emitwise attended Gartner’s Supply Chain Symposium in Barcelona, which gathered global CSCOs and Supply Chain executives. We attended the event to build our network with industry leaders and innovators and engage in conversations around sustainable supply chains.

Amidst rising expectations and uncertainty, supply chain leaders are facing complex challenges and pressure to consistently excel. With over 1,600 supply chain professionals, this event offered insights, strategies, and advice on many topics around future-proofing supply chains.

Our key takeaways from the event are:

  • Procurement is driving Scope 3 decarbonisation. Value streams are being re-evaluated and prioritised to achieve company-level net zero goals, cost reductions, and reduced supply chain climate risk.

  • Only 28% of those surveyed by Gartner stated that climate impacts their daily workflow, yet carbon data needs to drive decisions every day to achieve those targets.

  • Technology enables and accelerates decarbonisation, but there is no silver bullet solution; implementing tailored solutions that address specific needs to drive impactful progress is essential.
