What is Meta’s Responsible Supply Chain Programme?

How Does Meta use their Responsible Supply Chain Programme to Empower Workers and Protect the Environment?

Meta have adopted a strategy within their supplier engagement programme to help it reach net zero emissions across the value chain by 2030.  The Responsible Supply Chain Programme focuses on working with their procurement partners and vendors to establish their Scope 1,2 and 3 emissions, and then assist with training to set reduction targets and then take action to reach them.  

The History of Meta’s Responsible Supply Chain Programme

A pilot group of suppliers were assembled in 2021 to find greenhouse gas reduction opportunities within their businesses and operations.  One of Meta’s suppliers found nearly  9,000 megawatt hours of potential annual energy savings within its mechanical and electrical facility-level equipment. The Meta target is by the end of 2024, it intends to engage with suppliers representing two-thirds of its annual spend.

Meta and the Clean Energy Procurement Academy 

Meta is also a founding member of the Clean Energy Procurement Academy alongside Apple, Amazon, Nike, PepsiCo and REI Co-op. The alliance launched to help equip companies with the skills and knowledge required to access clean energy.  

Designed to speed up the integration of clean energy into global supply chains, the Academy will blend in-person and online training, along with comprehensive educational resources to:

  • Boost supply chain companies’ capacity to invest in renewable energy through education and data accessibility.
  • Foster synergy among different industries tackling shared challenges in supply chain climate action.
  • Encourage supply chain companies to escalate their renewable energy goals and commitments.
  • Establish new renewable energy buying communities in pivotal manufacturing regions.

“Meta recognises the critical urgency of climate action and has committed to achieving net zero emissions across our value chain in 2030. We know that reaching net zero value chain emissions will not be an easy task, and it will take cross-industry collaboration to raise tides and lift all boats. We are excited to partner with CEBA and our corporate partners here, so climate action can become as easy as possible for our suppliers and their upstream value chain,” said Blair Swedeen, Global Head of Net Zero and Sustainability.
