The 1.5°C Supply Chain Leaders is hosted by the Exponential Roadmap Initiative, founded together with Ericsson, IKEA, Telia, BT Group and Unilever, and supported by the We Mean Business Coalition and International Chamber of Commerce.

Mastercard pledged earlier this year to reach net zero emissions by 2050 and continues to lead on supplier sustainability, in line with its current and future Science Based Targets. The 1.5°C Supply Chain Leaders will work together with their suppliers and business partners to support large and small suppliers with concrete resources and tools through the SME Climate Hub, such as the 1.5°C Business Playbook.

“This is a crucial year for climate action and we, like other companies, have ambitious carbon reduction targets that will help drive exponential impact for the planet. Addressing the emissions of our global supply chains is an important step for all of us as we progress toward net zero, and we look forward to working more closely with the 1.5°C Supply Chain Leaders,” said Kristina Kloberdanz, Chief Sustainability Officer, Mastercard.
