Greenhouse Gas Accounting Efforts Undermined by Disparate Tools and Frameworks

Variability in product-level GHG accounting standards and methodologies can prevent companies from understanding both their true emissions and their progress in reducing them. Greater harmonization in product-level accounting could accelerate progress and enable better cross-organizational comparison. Collaboration among companies can lessen the burden of individual quality control and harmonization by standardizing the way they collect data, request information from suppliers, and report product-based GHG emissions.

Gsi Case Study Wwf Thumb

The business case for pre-competitive collaboration

The number of companies throughout various industries making commitments to sustainability has risen exponentially over the last few years. However, many companies are struggling to meet their commitments, often reinventing the wheel or pursuing parallel, but often unequal, strategies. There is a growing realization that individual supply chain actors lack the power to fix large-scale environmental degradation such as deforestation, depletion of wild fish stocks, and plastic pollution on their own, yet these problems pose real risks to entire industries and also to individual company reputations, as well as long-term profitability.

Feed of the Future: Transparent and Traceable

Feed is a major contributor to the footprint of animal husbandry, and an area where GSI members are committed to making measurable improvements. Together with WWF GSI have developed a first-of-its-kind ESG Risk Assessment Tool for feed ingredients. The ESG tool provides a holistic overview of possible ESG risks in the feed supply chain allowing companies to identify and mitigate risk improving the sustainability of the sector. Here we explain how the tool works.
