In the perspective of the COP26 which will be held from November 1st to 12th in Glasgow (Scotland), France Supply Chain has published a manifesto calling for a 'greening' of the supply chain. This document identifies three areas of progress: the design of the supply chain, the decarbonization of logistics and data sharing.

In the run-up to COP26, which will be held from 1 to 12 November in Glasgow (Scotland), France Supply Chain has published a manifesto calling for a 'greening' of the supply chain.

Through this document, the association and its SupplyChain4Good community intend to contribute to the fight against global warming by sharing their vision and proposals for 2030. Three areas of progress have been identified: supply chain design, decarbonization of logistics and data sharing.

Sharing data

In particular, the manifesto believes that it is now necessary to rely on well-designed end-to-end supply chains, to make logistics platforms a source of energy for the territories, and to share as much data as possible between companies, public authorities and associations.

"More sustainable supply chains are better for performance, people and the planet", reminds Yann de Feraudy, President of France Supply Chain.

According to France Supply Chain, major evolutions should occur on the market. Charlotte Migne, FM Logistic's sustainable development director, believes, for example, that end-to-end pooling will be the standard for urban deliveries in 2030.

Pierre-Martin Huet, supply chain director of the Michelin Group, believes that most trucks should have a fill rate of at least 95% by that time.
