Costco

Costco organic egg suppliers use the Cool Farm Tool to reduce GHG emissions

In this programme, the Costco organic egg suppliers receive the tools and training to do self-assessments and run “what-if” scenarios. Using the Cool Farm Tool the farmers determine their overall emissions and receive a breakdown of emissions by source so they can see what contributes the most. From here the farmers can start to map out emissions reduction pathways and test reduction potential.

Illy’s approach to certification

The innovation of this scheme is the shift from certifying the suppliers to certifying the capacity of the buyer to produce in a sustainable manner along the entire chain.

Environmental Scorecard

For the past five years, McDonald’s has used its Environmental Scorecard to encourage suppliers to measure and reduce their environmental impacts. Suppliers provide annual data for energy, water, air and waste relative to units of production. Suppliers then use the scorecard to identify and share best practices throughout McDonald’s supply chain related to collectively produce more with less.
