New supply chain certification to be piloted by the Carbon Trust


Following a period of detailed research and stakeholder engagement, a draft methodology for the new award has now been developed and the Carbon Trust is looking to work with a number of organisations across different sectors in an initial pilot phase running from early 2015.

The certification will provide a quantitative and qualitative framework for recognising organisations that have committed to take action on their supply chain environmental impacts, ultimately leading to carbon reductions. The methodology involves measuring impacts and improving processes and systems, allowing organisations to move forward from an initial commitment stage through to improving governance, measurement and the implementation of reduction initiatives.
