Fewer miles traveled and less unused space are a good place to start for an efficient supply chain. They're also a good place to start to reduce emissions, according to Home Depot VP of Transportation Michelle Livingstone. "As we try and improve the efficiency of our supply chain, it actually results in massively better sustainability measures," Livingstone told Supply Chain Dive in an interview Wednesday. Home Depot has pledged to reduce its Scope 1 and 2 emissions 40% by 2030 and 50% by 2035 compared to 2011. The company announced Thursday it made a 10% reduction from 2018 to 2019. And when it comes to transportation, that progress is about tracking efficiency and working with partners.
