Environmental sustainability goals within companies often have the best of intentions and little real-world impact. Historically, many companies have used internal corporate environmental sustainability as a marketing tool while lacking the ability to measure the more dramatic effect of their actions in their supply chains. This lack of accountability can largely be attributed to limited visibility into the supply chain, which is the source of more than 80% of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for most companies. Getting suppliers to collaborate in these programs is perhaps one of the greatest challenges in making real progress toward positive environmental action.
