The team members come from supply chain, finance and administrative sectors to give full overview of Sonepar China's progress, and to advise on how best to implement their initiatives. Starting from this year, Sonepar China has begun to systematically collect carbon emission data, focus on reducing their CO2 footprint, and formulate energy-saving measures. Their goal is to effectively reduce carbon emissions over the next ten years. The energy saving measures they're currently taking are to turn off all company lighting and air conditioning outside of office hours, convert packaging to be recyclable, consolidate stock item orders to reduce fragmented shipments and to arrange delivery frequency to reduce the rate in which vehicles are used. They're also encouraging every Sonepar China associate to help save energy and reduce emissions, thereby influencing suppliers and customers through their actions and efforts to develop a circular economy.
