Bidfood has partnered with climate intelligence technology firm CarbonCloud to calculate its climate footprint across the supply chain.

The wholesaler has set targets to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2045 and CarbonCloud’s platform is said to streamline the process, by providing Bidfood and its suppliers the opportunity to connect securely for better climate insights. As a first stage, Bidfood will have the initial climate footprint of its product range calculated swiftly in 2024.

“We’re thrilled to embark on this exciting collaboration with CarbonCloud and start collaborating with our suppliers on a single platform. Data integrity and scalability for our value chain is an important step towards achieving our sustainability objectives,” says Jim Gouldie, supply chain and technical services director at Bidfood.
