Cargill Business Case 2020
Reducing Emissions
A Sustainability Challenge


Cargill has committed to reducing the GHG emissions from transportation by 30% within our Supply Chain by 2025. To realize this goal, we have set sub targets to focus our efforts, which entail:
  • Increasing payload per transport movement
  • Pushing more volumes away from road transport and into rail and sea freight.
  • Reducing distance travelled wherever feasible

Within the boundaries of cost and impact on lead times to customers, it’s expected these actions will lead to a reduction of 15-20%. What we’re challenging you to do is to look further:

How can Cargill further lower it’s emissions from in- and outbound transport in its supply chain while avoiding paying a premium or impacting customer service, either by offsetting the cost or turn it into a competitive advantage?
