Not only do manufacturers face unique decarbonization challenges, but they are positioned — and often expected — to be leaders in addressing Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions.
The manufacturing industry is a major contributor to waste and carbon emissions and requires an immense amount of thermal energy, power and water. This track record is pushing manufacturers to look at their own production processes and their supply chains — how materials are sourced, produced and distributed — to find ways to meet their decarbonization targets.
This guidebook is the north star for any manufacturer willing to reduce emissions stemming from operations. It provides four practical lessons to decarbonize a company’s operation, spanning key areas like energy efficiency, heat decarbonization, renewable electricity and scalability of implementation.
Readers will learn how to overcome shortcomings such as delays, uncertainties and rising energy costs triggered by geopolitical issues, stakeholder misalignment, lack of technology and the need for large capital investments.
