CBRE Chief Sustainability Officer Robert Bernard remarked:

Decarbonizing supply chains requires breakthroughs in using technology and data in new ways to simplify the challenges of managing complex value chains. We are excited to partner with Emitwise to help our clients reduce their carbon impact and support our efforts to decarbonize our own supply chain.

The partnership with Emitwise enables suppliers to calculate more accurate carbon impacts and learn where to focus efforts to accelerate decarbonization. In addition, CBRE clients will gain better insight into their value chain at scale by having exclusive access to precisely accurate data and high-impact decarbonization opportunities.

Mauro Cozzi, co-founder and CEO of Emitwise, commented:

Emitwise equips companies with the data they need to make critical procurement decisions that de-risk their supply chain in a world transitioning to net zero. We are thrilled to partner with CBRE on their efforts to reduce emissions across their supply chain.

Emitwise will play a key role in advancing CBRE’s net zero strategy (PDF) by helping to track and reduce Scope 3 emissions in both the company’s and its clients’ supply chains.
