Listen to Pierre-François Thaler, co-CEO, EcoVadis speaking at the CIPS Virtual conference discussing GHG emissions in the supply chain.
Stakeholder demands for action on climate change are peaking in every industry. CEOs are committing to Science Based Targets, UN-Global-compact, and many more. Companies cannot fully transform their businesses to low-carbon models and achieve the greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions needed without including their value chains, putting procurement in the spotlight. And yet, the 2020 Business Sustainability and Performance Index shows a massive shortfall in suppliers reporting on carbon. Urgent action is needed.
In this session, Oliver Hurrey, Founder, Galvanised and Pierre-François Thaler will discuss the coming wave of “Scope 3” emissions reduction demands, what will be expected of procurement, and the key steps in a carbon action plan for the supply chain. You will learn and discover:
- The key phases of a carbon reduction action plan for the supply chain
- Insights on the scope of the opportunity, and the challenge faced with SME suppliers
- Why supply chain engagement is essential for driving actual improvements
- Procurement’s vital role to bridge the gap between predictive insights and planet-saving action!
