Watch on-demand as Eugenio Massimo Ferrario, Global Head of Procurement at consumer goods leader Henkel and sustainability experts from ENGIE Impact share how they successfully partnered to develop and deliver emission reduction at speed and scale.
Industries have a long history of driving energy efficiency through site-by-site, bottom-up, piecemeal initiatives, with a focus on energy and cost savings. This continuous improvement approach is now getting in the way of achieving Net Zero at pace. Investment payback periods are longer than they are for first waves of energy efficiency projects, innovative technologies are not yet fully proven, site-level funding is inadequate and in competition with other closer to business investments.
The race to Net Zero requires all of us to challenge proven practices and explore new ways of working, both internally across business functions, and externally with business partners. Embracing a multi-site “end-to-end” approach is now emerging as promising collaboration model to deliver GHG emissions reduction at larger scale, higher speed, lower cost, lower CapEx, and lower risk.
