RELEX Solutions becomes carbon neutral

RELEX Solutions, a provider of AI-driven supply chain and retail planning solutions, has retroactively achieved carbon neutrality for 2021 and begun compensating annually for its emissions. RELEX partnered with offsetting provider Compensate to calculate and offset its carbon footprint. In practice, this means the company successfully removed or avoided 2,544 tonnes of CO2 emissions.

RELEX reached the milestone through investments in two initiatives: afforestation in Qianbei, China, where 47,061 hectares of barren land are being converted into a forest, and the Luangwa Community Forests Project in Zambia, which improves local communities and protects 1 million hectares of wilderness areas.

RELEX and Compensate calculated the solution provider’s carbon footprint across scopes 1, 2, and 3, addressing both direct and indirect emissions. The approach allowed RELEX to gain a holistic view of its carbon output, helping the company to innovate, execute, and track new ways to reduce emissions from all three scopes.

Svante Göthe, Head of Sustainability at RELEX said, “solving the carbon emissions challenge first requires understanding its scope, so our priority was to gain visibility into how our operations impacted the environment, then counteract those impacts successfully. Reducing and offsetting carbon emissions is everyone’s responsibility – whether you’re a manufacturer, distributor, retailer, or solution provider, it’s important to scrutinise your footprint and take meaningful steps to address it.”

These global carbon offset projects are in addition to strategies RELEX has already put in place to reduce its emissions. Flexible work-from-home policies, reducing non-essential business travel, successful remote implementations, and maximising renewable energy coverage in RELEX’s cloud computing are a few examples of current initiatives that will continue to evolve.

Mikko Kärkkäinen, Co-Founder and Group CEO at RELEX added, “at RELEX, we pride ourselves on how our technology helps retailers, wholesalers, and consumer packaged goods companies become more sustainable, helping customers cut food waste by up to 40 per cent. That’s why it’s even more important that we practice what we preach, both in the long term through emissions reduction, and in the short term through emissions offsetting. We’re proud to support programs such as the Qianbei and Luangwa projects that will have tangible, positive impacts on their regions for years to come.”
