Largely due to:
- The sheer number of suppliers and the typically global and complex nature of supply chains
- Varying levels of expertise, sustainability maturity, commitment, and willingness from suppliers to engage on sustainability topics
- Limited supply chain visibility and transparency

A new white paper published by Edison Energy, Alfa Energy’s parent company, delves into the framework for supplier engagement and explores why the three pillars of data, education and engagement, and implementation is the most successful way forward to establishing a successful supply chain decarbonization program.
