How to reduce your carbon footprint

Most retailers and manufacturers are seeking to reduce their carbon footprint either to combat climate change or in response to escalating energy prices. This session will consider what the industry has learned so far and the scale of the challenge ahead. It will discuss how to measure carbon and how companies can work together to drive reductions. It will provide practical examples of businesses that have reduced their carbon footprint and consider longer term implications of the drive towards a low carbon economy.

Speakers: Euan Murray, Carbon Trust; Jon Woolven, IGD; Jon Wright, Innocent Drinks.

Facilitated by IGD.

  62. 62. EX5 : UK initiative : A Greener logistics Transport initiatives Fleet enhancement Average age of the fleet is 2.37 years. This is expected to reduce further as new vehicles are added in 2007. All units conform to the Euro 4 emission regulations. Culina to move to Euro 5 with effect from 2007. 11 units on order that already conforms to Euro 5 emission regulations that take effect in October 2009. Other initiatives Tests to run fleet on Bio fuel Reducing empty miles (return loads) Central planning to optimise fleet utilisation and increase load fill, reducing the number of food miles. Ph.

  71. 71. •The Carbon Footprint of Botanics Shampoo has been measured and options for reduction implemented. • Boots pioneered the Carbon Trust carbon footprint label trial (with Walkers & Innocent) • In store Point of sale material introduced in July 2007 • Advantage Card users have completed questionnaire on carbon labelling • Boots are now working with the Carbon Trust to refine the methodology and labelling scheme
  72. 72. Shampoo Carbon Footprint Total Footprint Excluding Use Phase Production Distribution 5% 29% Materials 5% CONSUMER USE - 93% water heating Distribution 2% Materials 66% PACKAGING Production Retail Disposal 0.3% >0% >0.% (bottles) 58%
  73. 73. Reducing the footprint • Use of 30% post-consumer recycled PET in bottles Overall footprint reduced by 10% • Redesigning the logistics network – No cardboard or plastic sent to stores for around 80% of items supplied Overall footprint reduced by 10%
  74. 74. Reducing the footprint – Consumer Use “You can help too. Using cooler water to wash your hair cuts CO2 emissions, reduces your energy bills and is actually better for your hair.”
  75. 75. What can you do? As an individual, do you think you can help to reduce carbon footprints? 13% 5% Yes No Not sure 82% Comment: A high level of understanding of the part individuals can play. Understanding the consumer use phase and options for personal actions are important to tap into this understanding. Base:1029 Advantage Card Users w/c 7th September 2007
  76. 76. Summary Learnings – Supply Chain • Carbon footprint must include all aspects of the Product Journey. - Whole supply chain must be involved • Data management requires co-operation across the supply-chain • The process has improved supply chain co-operation (eg; logistics, supplier energy efficiency) • Willingness for suppliers to become involved.
  77. 77. Summary Challenges - Measurement • Measurement is a complex process • Setting the system boundaries. •Common data sets for materials / processes = A need for common standards -UK Standard PAS 2050 Carbon footprinting – its place in wider sustainability?

  79. 79. Conclusions – Jon Woolven • Collaboration is the best way to tackle carbon reduction • Sharing best practice is essential • We need an international standard for measuring carbon footprints • We need to debate the best form of carbon communication to consumers
