Michigan-based BorgWarner, an automotive supplier, and Manufacture 2030, a decarbonization software provider, recently entered into a strategic partnership to measure and reduce BorgWarner’s supply chain carbon footprint and support its goal of reducing absolute Scope 3 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 25 percent by 2030.

“Reducing our carbon footprint in our supply base is a vital step in creating a cleaner, more sustainable future for all,” Volker Weng, BorgWarner vice president and BorgWarner Drivetrain and Battery Systems president and general manager, environmental sustainability lead, said. “Offering this software to our suppliers enables them to manage, track and reduce their emissions, which in turn enables us to reduce our Scope 3 emissions footprint.”

Under the agreement, BorgWarner will use Manufacture 2030’s software to encourage its direct material suppliers to increase their emissions reduction efforts. Manufacture 2030 will work with BorgWarner’s supply base to gather energy usage data related to the manufacturing of products and feed data into an interactive dashboard where emissions and energy reduction efforts can be tracked.

The Science Based Targets initiative validated BorgWarner’s targets to reduce absolute Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 85 percent by 2030 from a base year 2021 and absolute Scope 3 GHG emissions by 25 percent.
