At today’s Supply Chain Summit in London, the 2degrees network launches its Global Collaboration Map – a unique tool that aims to help corporates tackle the major sustainable supply chain issues through collaboration.
Since its formation 18 years ago, ClimateCare has specialised in projects that protect the environment, improve people’s lives and deliver measurable return on investment. These integrated Climate+Care programmes, delivered within supply chains, are exactly the kind of collaborative projects that feature on the map.
When the Co-operative identified a lack of access to safe water as a key issue for their Fairtrade tea pickers, they worked with ClimateCare to develop a bespoke insetting project to provide safe water to 14,000 people within their supply chain. As well as improving lives, increasing productivity and strengthening relations with communities the business relies on, this project is also delivering measurable emission reductions.
Similarly, ClimateCare developed a project within the UK supermarket supply chain. Using funds from the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) Finance Innovation for Climate Change Fund (FICCF) programme – this programme provides efficient cookstoves to 11,000 farm workers in Kenya, who supply flowers and vegetables to major supermarket chains in the UK and European markets. These stoves cut toxic fumes that kill 15,000 people in Kenya every year, improving the health of Finlays’ supply chain workers as well as cutting around 10,000 tonnes of CO2 per year.
