The products you decide to use and sell are included in your emissions. This addresses Scope 4 Emissions.

Food & Beverage:

  • Let suppliers know your customers care about sustainability
  • Find a local substitute for some of your highest emitters
  • Pressure suppliers to lower their emissions by using less plastic packaging
  • Use more sustainable shipping methods
