Nine Options to use Internal Carbon Pricing in Procurement
Recently, Ecofys, a Navigant company and The Generation Foundation published new research on Nine Options to use Internal Carbon Pricing in Procurement, explaining how companies and governments can use internal carbon pricing (ICP) to work with their suppliers and future-proof their supply chain. As part of the research, the authors are opening up the findings for online consultation until 7 December 2018 here: https://s.chkmkt.com/icp.
The authors would appreciate any feedback on the research findings via the online platform. Alternatively, Ecofys, a Navigant company and The Generation Foundation can provide a one-on-one webinar on the nine options, during which their experts would be happy to also present the Best Practice Guides to Corporate Internal Carbon Pricing that they published with CDP last year and answer any questions on ICP. The input will feed into a briefing paper on internal carbon pricing in procurement that they will publish around end of 2018 as part of the Carbon Pricing Unlocked partnership.
What is internal carbon pricing (ICP)?
ICP is a tool that can help governments and businesses identify the most optimal way to reduce their own carbon footprint and strengthen their position in the transition to a low-carbon economy. It attaches a monetary value to the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of goods and services, translating the low-carbon transition into a uniform metric that can influence financial decisions and change behaviour within an organisation as well as externally in its sphere of influence.
