Supply chain disruptions — spurred by COVID-19 shutdowns and exacerbated by severe capacity and labor shortages — are being felt in every industry, across every sector, and in every geography throughout the world. Consumers are frustrated, businesses are scrambling, and economies are struggling as producers, manufacturers, logistics providers, governments and others work to untangle the bottlenecks choking global commerce.
Never before has the global supply chain had so much attention, with a spotlight often shining brightest on transportation and logistics. This heightened visibility creates opportunity — and demand — for transformative sustainable solutions to mitigate environmental impacts.
In order for the world to achieve the aggressive carbon reduction targets necessary to keep temperatures from rising more than 1.5 degrees Celsius by 2050, we must collectively work to decarbonize the supply chain. Transportation is one of the highest-impact places to focus.
