Case Study

Professor Lenny Koh, SCEnAT

Research at Sheffield University Management School into supply chain management and carbon reduction has delivered economic and environmental impact by helping businesses reduce their carbon footprint through lower-cost resource efficiencies.

The Supply Chain Environmental Analysis Tool, SCEnAT, was developed from our research and has helped businesses worldwide change their operations to reduce C02 emissions, make cost savings of up to £250,000 per company, and improve their business performance through – in one case – winning additional contracts worth £1.75million.

The research has also been used by regional business organisations in developing and implementing growth strategies to support low carbon businesses in Yorkshire and Humber.
