SUPPLIERS

Our supply chain accounts for approximately 46 percent of the greenhouse gas emissions in our value chain. We work closely with supplier partners to identify efficiencies, both in their operations and through their own supply chains.

​​​​​​​Monitoring supplier performance

We formally evaluate supplier performance annually and we use online sustainability management software that is designed to aggregate, diagnose, monitor and report data, while our supplier assessment system includes climate performance. To score highly, a supplier must:

  • collect and share environmental data via our environmental reporting platform;

  • show leadership by having strategies and policies on energy and climate change; and

  • show transparency by having climate impact targets on site level and report emission reductions over time. 

Over 80 percent of the carbon impact from upstream in our supply chain comes from packaging materials production and transportation.​

Our chain of custody goals within our FSC commitments make a direct contribution to protecting forests, while sourcing bio-based alternatives to plastic help reduce the carbon impact in our supply chain.​
