Sustainability is no longer just a buzzword in industry, it should now be an essential component in the future planning for any business. The reduction of CO2 emissions across all major industries is a significant factor, which is why companies must take action now to integrate decarbonisation into their long-term policy and strategies.
Sustainably Sourced and Environmentally Responsive Products
There is also growing pressure from consumers, who are actively seeking out sustainably sourced and environmentally responsible products, choosing to buy from companies that proactively support this in both their own operations and that of their supply chain.
This includes reducing their carbon footprint, depolluting, creating a circular economy for products, responsibly sourcing materials and becoming more water and energy efficient.
For decarbonisation to be achieved, all major firms will need to take action to fulfil the Paris Agreement goal of a climate-neutral society by 2050. This will be a complex process that will require new ways of working between firms, suppliers, customers and even regulators, but at the same time it presents a great economic opportunity.
Taking Action to Fulfil the Paris Agreement Goal of Climate-Neutral Society by 2050
Companies will need help to understand their emissions profile, and particular expertise is needed to explore the different emissions reduction pathways available. This is why BlueThink created the Decarbonisation Toolkit, a comprehensive service for companies aimed at identifying the optimal mix of technologies and strategies needed to meet the low-carbon targets over time, whilst also minimising the total cost.
Decarbonisation Toolkit for Identifying Technologies and Strategies
The service is broken down into a three-step approach looking at different levels of detail, from general group strategy right through to the implementation on a single production line.
1) Overall Group Decarbonisation Strategy
We evaluate all viable routes to meet the group CO2 reduction target on multiple sites, considering the availability of technologies and biofuels in different regions of the world and related costs. You will have visibility of the expected site-by-site investment costs and any energy cost variations in the long run to enable decision making.
2) Site Decarbonisation Scenarios
We take an industrial site and analyse how to transform it into a zero-emissions factory. The site is digitally modelled to enable testing of all decarbonisation options to identify the solution that will satisfy all technical requirements, meet the CO2 target and minimize total costs. You will be provided with a selection of technological solutions to be implemented and a business plan of the best decarbonisation pathway.
3) Implementation Plan
Last but not least, we will help you take the decarbonisation plan from paper to real-world implementation, working together with experts, technicians and local providers of biofuels and technologies.
