Understanding carbon in the supply chain

  1. 1. Understanding Carbon inthe Supply ChainJohn NewtonGroup Manager Sustainability & EnvironmentAmcor Australasia
  2. 2. Amcor Australasia• Australia’s leading Packaging Manufacturer• 50+ manufacturing sites • Recycled Paper • Aluminium cans • Flexible Films • Glass Bottles • Cartons • Corrugated Boxes• 4500 Co-workers• $2Bn + turnover 2
  3. 3. Amcor & Carbon• Energy tracking for 10 years• Tracked in ‘Envirochart’• Material energy well understood.• Scope 1 & Scope 2 emissions externally audited 3
  4. 4. Amcor & Carbon• Tracking rough scope 3 for 5 years – Cartonboard – HDPE resin• Major supplies only: – LDPE resin – Waste paper – PET resin – Pulpwood – PP resin – Unbleached kraft pulp – Aluminium (sheet / foil) – Bleached kraft pulp – Steel sheet – Recycled board – Feldspar – Calcium carbonate – Glass cullet (external) – Clay – Sand – Starch – Shell grit – Virgin paper / board – Soda Ash –• Industry averages to calculate carbon footprint• Done for internal tracking only• Outputs used in Global Reporting 4
  5. 5. Amcor & Carbon• Built Carbon Model• Scope 1 & 2 no change• Scope 3 increased accuracy• Some Industry Averages still used• Some direct inputs from suppliers 5
  6. 6. Amcor Carbon Footprints• Scope 1&2 – 1 million tonnes• Scope 3 - 1 million tonnes 6
  7. 7. Carbon Management Strategy• Resource Efficiency – Lights – Motors – Air – Steam – Heating/cooling• Energy supply – Cogen – Biomass – Waste to Energy• Supply Chain – Materials Selection – Sourcing – Partnerships 7
  8. 8. Conclusions• Energy supply only part of the story• Focus on Material Issues• Accurate quantification can be complex• Business risk if not managed 8
