Find out how we are addressing the challenges faced when working with supply chains to reduce scope 3 emissions which are indirect emissions that occur in a company’s value chain.
Inconsistent supplier emissions data is a challenge for many businesses when reducing Scope 3 emissions. We are working to address this challenge by asking suppliers to use a consistent methodology when measuring and 报告ing their emissions.
We also conduct lifecycle assessments to inform where our emission hotspots are in our supply chain. This helps us to reduce these emissions by design, be it physical, material or systemic.
The series of webinars will explore how companies can reduce their Scope 3 emissions helping businesses to credibly measure, 报告, and reduce these emissions while incorporating it into their net zero strategy and identify practical steps for engaging stakeholders within a value chain to accelerate the reduction of a business’ Scope 3 emissions.
Guest speakers will include climate experts and representatives from companies that have already started on their journey and can share their experiences.
As a UN Global Compact Network UK member we support this event helping businesses, 政府, and society to progress while taking learnings throughout the series.
Through our Environmental Steering Group we have achieved some many accolades to date. A key milestone in our sustainability journey was becoming one of the first in the industry to achieve B公司 status - an external validation that we are doing precisely what we say we will do. However, we recognise that there is so much more that we can continue to work towards.
