Bidfood takes next step in carbon management

Bidfood has committed to calculating its climate footprint, including Scope 3, right across the value chain

Announcing its strategic collaboration with CarbonCloud, a pioneer in climate intelligence technology, Bidfood is taking steps forward to accurately measure and reduce its full carbon footprint, including Scope 3.

Bidfood has set robust climate targets to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2045 across all scopes, includes Scope 3 category Purchased Goods & Services, which is traditionally the least visible and hardest to measure element of a food businesses carbon footprint.

Calculating Purchased Goods and Services is a significant challenge and carbon management in this category calls for sustained collaborative action throughout the supply chain, and the data required for the calculations is often difficult to pinpoint.

By partnering with CarbonCloud, Bidfood and its suppliers can benefit from accurate climate data and insight. The CarbonCloud platform connects the entire supply chain network and, by mapping out the value chain of each product from farm to retail gate, it enables real-time updates to ensure that the data quality and accuracy are instantly reflected across the network.

“We’re thrilled to embark on this exciting collaboration with CarbonCloud… Data integrity and scalability for our value chain is an important step towards achieving our sustainability objectives,” said Jim Gouldie, Bidfood’s Supply Chain and Technical Services Director (pictured).
