Blume Global Pledges to Achieve Carbon Neutrality and Innovates to Enhance Supply Chain Sustainability

Blume Global | April 23, 2021

Blume Global, a leading supplier of logistics and supply chain solutions fuelled by the world's first internationally connected multi-modal network, has announced that it will shortly become carbon neutral. South Pole, a leading climate solutions provider, and project developer has worked with the organization to create a cleaner supply chain by drastically reducing its own emissions (Scope 1, 2, and 3). Blume is now reducing waste in the supply chain sector by using its domestic reload and the street turns solutions, among other services. Blume and South Pole are working to improve sustainability practices through greenhouse gas accounting and have built an emissions-reduction strategy that will be reviewed and renewed on an annual basis. The proposal addresses both direct and indirect emissions from sources owned or regulated by Blume, as well as emissions from business practices such as travel, commuting, and waste disposal. Blume is engaging in carbon-offset projects to reduce its existing carbon footprint. The sustainability of supply chains is a pervasive concern. According to the MIT Center for Transportation & Logistics and the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals' State of Supply Chain Sustainability 2020 study, more than 80% of the 1,100 stakeholders surveyed reported sustainability as a target or something that was fast becoming a major corporate objective. More than half of those surveyed said they were under pressure to implement supply chain sustainability practices. Despite these statistics, less than half of those surveyed could recognize actionable sustainability goals. Blume anticipates the inevitable restrictions on greenhouse gas emissions and offers the required expertise, technology, and data to stakeholders to minimize excessive carbon emissions in the supply chain. Blume creates, maintains, and promotes a purposeful supply chain ecosystem, with the responsibility of making any movement of goods count. About Blume Global Blume Global, a supply chain technology supplier, is eliminating $1 trillion in waste from the global supply chain by using innovative execution and visibility solutions to make logistics operations more agile, dependable, and sustainable. Shippers, 3PLs, and other stakeholders once thought of digitization as a luxury; today, using machine learning and AI solutions to digitalize and simplify processes is a must to stay competitive. Blume's digital platform enables users to predict the effects of disruptions and react in real-time before minor issues become major issues. Among logistics technology providers, Blume has the most extensive network. Blume's direct access to the ocean, air, rail, parcel, LTL, and truckload carriers, combined with Blume's solutions and 26 years of industry data, allows customers to increase transportation spend, enhance customer service, and reduce carbon emissions. These solutions are backed by a sizable R&D team that is constantly adding new high-value features. Blume Global is leading the industry in building supply chain sustainability solutions, combating climate change by eliminating massive carbon emissions in a world where the majority of freight is delivered using fossil fuels.
