Decarbonising the Value Chain

Decarbonise to deliver value, enhance productivity and drive cost efficiency in Industrial manufacturing and services.

Faced with the complex challenge of needing to decarbonise at pace - while also addressing rising prices, inflation and energy prices - where do you start? We don’t believe that a focus on decarbonisation means you can’t achieve competitive advantage. In fact, with the right blend of creativity and commerciality, risk and reward, technology and innovation, you can find opportunities to unlock investment and productivity across your whole value chain.

We can help you work at pace, tackling the value chain from both ends to find those pockets of success that will build momentum. We use data and technology to give you transparency and robust reporting on your progress and help you turn that into market advantage.

When you bring together the right sector insight, expertise and technology, you bring net zero within reach. And when you combine it with the right mindset, you transform the need to decarbonise from obligation into commercial opportunity.

Together, we can build a more productive, sustainable value chain.

What we do

How customer-led decarbonisation can kickstart growth for industrial and services businesses

Despite today’s challenging and cost-constrained market, growing customer pressure to decarbonise means industrial businesses can no longer afford to delay action.

Almost half (43%) of manufacturers feel that the demand for ESG initiatives, low-carbon products and eco-friendly services is coming directly from customers. Not only that, but there’s increasing pressure around being seen to be green, with some RPFs specifically asking for data and facts to demonstrate their claims. Customers want to see the changes being made and the impact they’re having. There’s no time to lose — using these demands as benchmarks for your decarbonisation strategy will help you achieve responsible growth.

Sustainable finance

Investors and lenders are demanding action on decarbonisation. Banks are reducing their exposure to carbon emissions and the vast majority of new fund mandates have ESG criteria attached. And for those who can demonstrate their pace and progress, there’s also a $trillion value pool seeking to invest.

Transparency on data as a platform for change

With a framework in place for measurement and improvement on your position, we can present robust, credible reporting to the market. That data gives us the ability to connect the dots on the pockets of innovation, providing stakeholder visibility and turning it into broader initiatives within your organisation to optimise decarbonisation.
