WEBINAR: Retailer supply chains & the barriers & opportunities to cutting emissions – with Dr Stephen Mackenzie
The UK has one of the most concentrated groceries retail sectors in the world, with just five supermarkets controlling around 80% of the market. Tackling GHG emissions in these supply chains can therefore have a huge impact. But with thousands of suppliers, fierce competition between retailers, and less-than-perfect measurement tools, how can this actually be achieved? Dr Stephen Mackenzie, a Senior Specialist on the issue of GHGs in food systems at WRAP, digs into this for us.
Dr Mackenzie covers:
- A top-down view on key sources of GHG emissions in UK food systems and trends in recent years
- An overview of membership and principles of the GHG working group under the Courtauld Commitment 2030
- Current barriers to measuring GHGs across supply chains, including on-farm carbon calculation tools, reporting standards, and decision making.
- The Retailer Net Zero CAP – opportunities and challenges of forming such collaborations
- Research gaps to measuring / reducing GHG in supply chains and where our working group members say they need help
