NSC on Twitter:
Sustainability 1.0 - Increasing efficiency to stop the growth of GHG emissions by 2015
Forming Renewable Energy Networks
Our use of renewable energy is an integral part of our business and supply chain strategies, by:
- Finding synergistic partners.
- Understanding the collective power profile.
- Generating, storing and smoothing on site.
- Sourcing offsite the remaining needs.
- Accessing green financing.
Re-use of previously waste materials, from recycling to exploring new materials is key to:
- Exploiting the“Return to value” funnel
- From paying for waste to recovering value.
- Products becoming services and creating ”sticky relationships”
- From managing inefficient reverse supply chains to creating renewable networks.
Material Circular Networks

Wherever you are on the journey, Neutral Supply Chain helps you build and execute strategies, in three distinct waves, to build fully sustainable supply chains for your organization to meet your obligations.
Earlier work for DHL and the Government of Dubai helped form NSC's Sustainability 2.0 strategy.
An active Employee Engagement programme is essential to a successful sustainability strategy.
during NSC's engagement with Inchcape Shipping Services, bringing our thinking and practice to developing markets.
Measure and manage energy efficiency and GHG intensity programmes to reduce consumption by 30%.
Building renewable energy networks, circular material networks and shared economies.
Research potential programmes to power the future clean economy.
How do we shape a coherent sustainability programme?
Do we have a carbon footprint baseline? How do we measure our scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions?
What insights can we get from proper assessment and energy benchmarking exercise?
Do we set an intensity or absolute target? What targets are achievable and in what time-frame?
Where should we “reduce” and where do we “replace”?
What are the proven efficiency approaches and what payback periods do they produce?
What lessons have been learned on people engagement and how do we communicate this in an authentic fashion?
What are the real business benefits we can expect?
