How are you responding to the climate emergency? You may be taking action at a personal level to do your bit. Reducing air travel, eliminating single use plastics, eating less meat. You may believe the task is too daunting to be tackled as an individual and have decided to look away.

We may have finally reached a tipping point when it comes to action on climate change. 1 Energy companies, manufacturing companies, and governments around the world are setting realistic goals and, more importantly, taking real action. Today’s blog is about how climate action relates to supply chain management. Almost every company these days has a sustainability page on their website. Some use the term circularity. You can think of circularity as a subset of sustainability.
