31% of global greenhouse gas emissions originate from food-related activities. For the first time in history, enterprises are mandated by regulatory bodies to disclose their climate performance. This leads to increasing pressure from investors, competitors, retailers, and consumers to actually prevent and reduce their CO2e emissions. Over the next 10 years, companies have set ambitious reduction targets that need to be met. Root is building the most complete data set on GHG emissions of the global food industry – from CPG brands and retailers to food processors and growers. We do that by helping our customers identify, collect, and centralise activity data across their supply chains, which we combine with the most up-to-date emission factor data sets to model each company’s and product’s environmental footprint. Like this, companies do not only measure and disclose their climate footprint, but they also identify and act upon individual emission hotspots across their supply chains.
