Quantis and CO2 AI Announce Strategic Partnership to Drive Scope 3 Emissions Reduction

“We are proud to be partnering with CO2 AI to help organizations around the world reach their ambitious commitments to sustainability. Digitalizing the corporate footprint is a critical step to ensure the reduction of environmental impacts at scale. In business it’s not enough to just make an ask, you make the case through data.”

In a landmark initiative for sustainable business practices, Quantis, a global sustainability consultancy, and CO2 AI, a premier carbon management platform, have established a strategic partnership. This partnership aims to drive substantial reductions in Scope 3 emissions across various industries and represents a significant leap forward in leveraging digital solutions to combat climate change. This collaboration is already proving its value through a pioneering project with Reckitt, a leading producer of health, hygiene, and nutrition products.

Innovative Solution Through Collaboration

Reckitt set an ambitious goal of 50% absolute reduction by 2030, and Net Zero by 2040. To do this, they needed to implement decarbonization initiatives at scale while tackling the challenge of data collection from a vast network of suppliers. The partnership between Quantis and CO2 AI introduces a groundbreaking approach to this challenge. The initiative has significantly enhanced the granularity of emissions data available by collecting primary data (more than 400,000 data points were collected in 2023) directly from suppliers.

This wealth of information allows for a detailed understanding of emissions by brands and products, pinpointing the highest leverage reduction initiatives in order to meet 2030 targets and model their impact.

Quantis’ expertise in identifying impactful reduction strategies, combined with the analytical power of the CO2 AI platform, enables Reckitt to visualize emissions and operationalize its Net Zero strategy across its entire portfolio. This visibility extends from packaging, which alone contributed over 60,000 data points, to detailed emissions hotspots. Such insights are crucial for making informed decisions, such as transitioning to post-consumer recycled packaging to achieve maximum emissions reduction.

Speaking on the partnership Fabrice Beaulieu, Chief Marketing Sustainability and Corporate Affairs Officer at Reckitt said:” We believe in the power of data and AI to accelerate our progress on the net zero journey and are delighted to partner with Co2AI and Quantis in that space.”

Charlotte Degot, CEO and Co-Founder, CO2 AI: “We’re excited to drive decarbonization for the world’s largest organizations together with Quantis. The team’s expertise complements our technology to help companies identify emissions hotspots, implement concrete reduction initiatives across the organizations and their supply chain, and track progress at scale.”

Allon Zeitoun, Global Leader and Managing Director, Quantis:

“We are proud to be partnering with CO2 AI to help organizations around the world reach their ambitious commitments to sustainability. Digitalizing the corporate footprint is a critical step to ensure the reduction of environmental impacts at scale. In business it’s not enough to just make an ask, you make the case through data.”

Strategic Collaboration Turned Immediate Impact

The partnership between Quantis and CO2 AI sets a precedent for how companies can leverage digital solutions to address complex sustainability challenges. By bringing together Quantis’ deep expertise in sustainability strategies and CO2 AI’s advanced analytical capabilities, the partnership has delivered a scalable model for achieving net-zero carbon emissions and exemplifies the capacity for immediate and impactful sustainability solutions.

Empowering Change Across Levels

The collaboration empowers Reckitt’s teams, from procurement to its global executive committee, with the tools and data necessary to take action and drive meaningful change. Operational teams can now visualize their direct contributions to emissions reduction, fostering a culture of accountability and progress. Meanwhile, executive leadership benefits from automated updates on the company’s carbon footprint, ensuring that Reckitt remains on track to meet its ambitious targets.

A Lasting Arrangement for Broader Impact

The collaboration is designed as a lasting arrangement, offering other companies a robust pathway to decarbonization. The partnership’s approach combines detailed emissions data collection with strategic insights, empowering businesses to make informed decisions toward their sustainability goals. This model supports companies in achieving ambitious targets and serves as a beacon for other organizations committed to environmental responsibility.

Empowering Change, Setting New Standards: A Model for the Future

Quantis and CO2 AI’s partnership is more than a strategic alliance. It sets a new standard for addressing Scope 3 emissions and serves as a model for how digitization can pave the way for companies to reach Net Zero. By combining deep sustainability expertise with advanced technology, Quantis and CO2 AI demonstrate that significant progress toward decarbonization is possible and achievable.
