The Net Zero Supply Chain Initiative

The Net Zero Supply Chain (NZSC) Initiative is an innovative partnership focused on accelerating decarbonization in Canada’s freight-transportation supply chains. Developed by GLOBE, Delphi and 7GEN, the NZSC Initiative is the first of its kind in Canada.

The initiative brings together a group of transportation leaders to design and deliver Canada’s first-ever net-zero supply chain pilot. The first phase will focus on one part of the freight-transportation journey: moving a shipment from the port to a store using net-zero technologies. Initially this will be within a 50-100km radius of the Port of Vancouver.

After the initial demonstration, we will apply the lessons learned to shipments from the West Coast to Eastern Canada. Once we learn more about how we can address barriers to decarbonizing freight transportation, we’ll be able to accelerate the deployment of net-zero solutions across the supply chain.

This work will prove that decarbonizing Canada’s supply chain is possible, and we invite others in the transportation sector (and those who are interested in it) to join us.
