BSR Launches Future of Fuels Initiative

The world is moving towards new, low carbon ways to operate cars, machines, and generate energy. Supply chain managers must be remarkably aware of these oncoming changes, and how to properly mix traditional power sources with new. This article by Patrick Burnson explains how BSR’s Clean Cargo Work Group has been working on that very question: how to explore fuel alternatives while still keeping up with rising and constant supply chain needs. The group will soon publish its findings after having discussions with stakeholders. The questions they hope to answer include: 1. Frame the issues: This research brief will draw on existing studies and interviews with third-party experts to explore the state of knowledge about the sustainability impacts of transportation fuels. 2. Outline the options: This research brief will look at how companies can use the information and frameworks described in the first brief to develop better fuel choices. 3. Highlight opportunities for collaboration: BSR’s final research brief will help companies understand how they can work with business partners—from energy and fuel producers to providers and users of transportation and logistics services—to implement more sustainable solutions. The study will help companies determine how to tap into new energy sources and how to implement them across the business. Companies such as Coca-Cola, Nike, Shell, Suncor, UPS, Walmart, and the US Department of Defense have joined BSR in an effort to create open dialogue and progress. Supply chain managers might be profoundly affected by the input, findings, and subsequent decisions of the BSR and the companies that are helping in their efforts.
