In addition, this year Kinaxis announced its Sustainable Supply Chain solution, which allows companies to track Scope 3 greenhouse gas emissions and understand how changes to their supply chain plans can positively or negatively impact those emissions.
“I am proud of our progress in this year’s Global Impact Report and take tremendous pride in our company’s strong commitment to ESG and preserving the planet,” said John Sicard, president and CEO of Kinaxis. “There is no larger consumer of the earth’s natural resources than supply chain, so it is our responsibility to continue to advance our personal commitments as well as those of our customers by innovating in ways that help them meet their corporate goals, while doing less harm. I am confident that our new Sustainable Supply Chain solution will do just that.”
