We reviewed Reformation's baseline to understand emission hotspots and potential reduction activities to help inform the right level of ambition that was both challenging and achievable given their anticipated high business growth. As a fast-growing company, they are facing increased challenges to decarbonise. South Pole developed a data-driven and actionable roadmap to achieve the client's targets for scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions by identifying key interventions across their raw materials sourcing, transportation, circularity and energy use (within operations and value chain). The suggested interventions were assessed and prioritised through a consultation process with the company's internal stakeholders based on reduction impact, feasibility, and alignment with their product and sourcing strategy. The roadmap provided the client with a clear understanding of how much the interventions contributed towards their Climate Positive target and where to focus investment efforts.
One of the priority areas identified was engaging with Reformation's direct suppliers to decarbonise their energy systems. South Pole is supporting them in developing a supplier engagement program and launching a pilot project with suppliers in China to help them transition to renewable energy sources. The program includes supplier workshops hosted by South Pole, direct training using South Pole's RE-Powering Toolkit, consultation services for suppliers during the development of their decarbonization roadmaps, and the establishment of a REC/EAC purchasing platform to facilitate bulk purchasing agreements.
