In the modern landscape of manufacturing, where precision, efficiency and of course cost are paramount, the integration of digitalisation into business management has emerged as essential requirements certainly when we consider sustainability. Globally governments are tightening their grip on emissions, pushing manufacturers to only track but to reduce their direct and indirect emissions.
In the make UK recent insights report they comment that the need to reduce carbon is now embedded in most companies’ business plans with a quarter of Britain’s manufactures stating digitalisation has led to decarbonisation and strengthening their ability to achieve net zero targets.
It is really positive to hear that manufacturers have a focus on sustainability and are embracing digitalisation and emission reduction activities aligned to Scope 1 and 2. This focus is now quickly moving to the Scope 3 based indirect emissions, which is presenting challenge.
With the current state of encouragement rather than requirement to report scope 3 emissions within the UK, this is projected to follow the European union’s decisive steps, and start with mandating reporting through legislation, with the expected requirement for businesses to act to show measurements and reductions in their indirect emissions.
For most manufactures the majority of indirect emission will be related to the logistics involved in distributing goods, but unfortunately many supply chain networks do not have the capabilities to provide data and sustainability activities against their carbon emissions.
At FLS we can support this.
By working with FLS, you can stay one step ahead of regulations and the competition. FLS provide manufactures a one point of contact to enable scalability from accessing the UK largest network of road-based carriers including a growing number of HVO100 and electric vehicles, all with emission tracking and reporting.
Data is provided on a load-by-load basis, and available in live reporting against vehicle date range, vehicle type, routes, clients and delivery sites.
The most recent UK empty mileage statistics have highlighting inefficient vehicle utilisation by detailing that 29.8% of all UK road mileage was driven empty: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/rfs01-goods-lifted-and-distance-hauled
FLS technology and data approach targets these inefficiencies through engaging this scaled supply chain by proximity and not point of origin, demonstrating instant improvements in empty mileage mitigation and subsequent carbon emission savings.
FLS understand the urgency of climate responsibility and the requirements of a logistics service provider to the manufacturing sector to provide an immediate solution to embrace digitalisation for decarbonization considering the scope 3 requirements.
With a team of technology, data and logistics specialists readily available, we encourage any manufacture to get in contact to see how FLS could support your business with recording and reducing carbon emissions across your supply chain.
