Sprint Nextel case study

We believe Trucost's approach is a breakthrough that finally facilitates a cost-effective, fast and timely assessment of a corporation's supply chain environmental impact. The barriers to completing a supply-chain assessment have been substantial, preventing most corporations from taking this important step in understanding their total environmental impact.


Sprint Nextel is one of the leading U.S. telecommunications providers and is widely recognized for its work in developing innovative wireless technologies.

Sprint Nextel wanted to analyze the carbon footprint of its supply chain and identify high impact suppliers in order to understand the most effective opportunities for emissions reduction.

Sprint commissioned Trucost to:

  • Identify which companies contribute most to its supply chain emissions
  • Identify which sectors contribute most to its supply chain emissions
  • Assess how well suppliers disclose their environmental impacts
