Manufacture 2030 and Mondra unite to simplify carbon reporting for grocery suppliers

Manufacture 2030 and Mondra announce a new partnership to streamline carbon reporting and reductions for UK grocers, furthering the sector’s transition to net zero.

Manufacture 2030, a leading carbon reduction platform, and Mondra, a prominent product footprinting and supply chain decarbonization platform, are proud to announce their partnership to enhance interoperability between both software systems. This collaboration aims to streamline the carbon reporting and management process for grocers, brand owners, and their supply chain partners, aiding the sector’s transition towards net zero.

With the British Retail Consortium’s commitment to achieving net zero by 2040, grocers and their supply chain partners are facing increased pressure to provide detailed carbon data. Suppliers, inundated with multiple data requests from different retailers, are struggling to keep pace with the rising demand.

While both platforms will continue to operate independently, the new interoperability functions between Manufacture 2030 and Mondra will reduce the need for multiple rekeying requests across the grocery supply chain. This integration will offer a holistic overview of all GHG data within a single interface, enabling grocers and brand owners to measure and prioritize action more effectively.

Both Manufacture 2030 and Mondra are dedicated to a shared net zero vision and understand the complexities and challenges of engaging suppliers across multiple touchpoints. They recognize the importance of a collaborative mindset for successful decarbonization. This partnership builds on Manufacture 2030’s partnership with 10 of the UK’s largest grocery retailers and Mondra’s work with over 85% of the UK grocery sector.

Speaking on the partnership, Florence Batten-Turner, Head of Retail Partnerships at Manufacture 2030, said:

We are thrilled to join forces with Mondra to tackle our shared mission of decarbonizing the UK grocery sector. Through our collaboration, we reduce the reporting asks of suppliers in the grocery supply chain, allowing them to focus on taking the necessary actions to reduce their environmental impact and operate more efficiently. This partnership builds upon Manufacture 2030's landmark initiatives across the automotive, pharmaceutical, FMCG, and wider retail sectors to help drive down carbon emissions and equip suppliers with the essential tools to operate more sustainably.

Jason Barrett, founder of Mondra, added:

Mondra and M2030 have shared missions, and common customers so it makes a huge amount of sense to unite out solutions, ensuring interoperability and easing the burden of data sharing across thousands of food supply chain actors. The real win here in the opportunity to enrich data, enhance the improvement of insights and accelerate the job of decarbonising supply chains as the sector transitions to Net Zero.
