6 Methods to Reduce your Supply Chain Carbon Footprint

According to the Inventory of U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Sinks 1990-2017–the national inventory that the U.S. prepares annually under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change–transportation accounted for the largest portion (29 percent) of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions in 2017, which includes cars, trucks, commercial aircraft, railroads and all other sources. On average, more than seven percent of an industry’s carbon footprint is attributed to emissions from the supply chain.

As you can see, the transportation industry has a role to play in the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Greenhouse gas emissions are a main contributor to climate change and global warming. Manufacturers, retailers and logistics companies can reduce their carbon footprint by changing the way they do business. This includes reducing waste in the supply chain, improving energy efficiency, conserving natural resources and promoting the use of clean energy.

Reducing your supply chain carbon footprint can help you reduce your operating expenses, improve revenue and make the right impression on potential business partners and consumers–particularly those that want to preserve the natural environment. Regardless of what role your company plays in the U.S. supply chain, use these tips to reduce your supply chain carbon footprint.

7 Visualisations that demonstrate How we Humans are Destroying Earth

World population is growing at a rapid rate across the globe and according to a recent prediction by the UN, the global population will approximately be 10 billion by 2050. Whilst we are aware of its socio-economic repercussions like poverty, inequality, hunger, malnutrition, unemployment, lack of education and healthcare, it is important to understand that the aforementioned will take a huge toll on our planet’s natural resources. The most obvious implication of such a population explosion is deforestation to accommodate the rising population, which in turn can have a huge negative impact on biodiversity and ecological balance.

The production of greenhouse gasses by burning fossil fuel is causing “global warming” which is evident as the average temperature of air and oceans has significantly gone up. It has resulted in a disruption of the natural pattern of rainfall causing flooding and drought in the same region during the same year.

Unless we take notice of the developments and try to make amendments in our ways to lower our carbon footprint, the planet might look quite different soon. Check out this infographic from DPACK that lists 7 visualizations that elaborate how we humans are destroying the planet.

Why you should Upcycle in your Next Remodel

Upcycling is a great way to make use of old, damaged, or unwanted products by transforming them into something new and improved, rather than letting them go to waste. When it comes to home design, people typically use upcycling to create decorative accent pieces, but who’s to say you can’t upcycle in home remodel as well?
