Klimanjaro – Climate Neutral Supply Chain

An electricity retailer in Norway is using its purchasing power to inspire all its suppliers to be climate neutral by 2019.

The Project

Fjordkraft, the second largest electricity retailer in Norway, is using its purchasing power to inspire all its suppliers to be climate neutral by 2019.
Fjordkraft has been climate neutral since 2007, but decided in June 2016 it could do more, launching its Klimanjaro project to inspire its suppliers to make bold commitments to climate action: to measure greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, reduce what they can, and offset the rest. The name, Klimanjaro combines klima, the Norwegian word for climate, with the name of Africa’s highest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro. Mount Kilimanjaro is difficult to climb, but fully feasible if everyone summits together.

Key Facts

  1. 118 of Fjordkraft’s 138 service providers and suppliers have signed letters committing to become climate neutral by 2019;
  2. To date, the commitments from suppliers in total are more than 100-times greater than emissions from Fjordkraft’s own operations;
  3. GHG emissions from more than 29,700 employees will be reduced and offset by 2019
