Given the ambitious global targets that are being set to reach “net zero”, organisations are either initiating or stepping up their carbon commitment reductions. With most large companies already accounting and reporting on the emissions from their direct operations (Scopes 1 and 2), they are now beginning to focus on their full range of corporate value chain and product emissions. Emissions from along the value chain (also known as Scope 3 emissions) often represent a company’s biggest greenhouse gas impact however they can be much harder to measure than those from a company’s direct operations. Value chain emissions include all indirect emissions generated by the business such as purchased goods and services, investments, business travel, use of sold products, upstream and downstream transportation.
This event will address the steps organisations can take to identify and reduce their Scope 3 emissions and will include case studies from both Microsoft and Kellogg.
