Taking Ownership: A Roadmap for Supply Chain Decarbonisation

Day 1 - 5th Oct | 15:40 - 16:30

Location: Sustainable Resources Theatre

Decarbonisation

Overview

Most companies’ climate impact lies in their supply chains. Measuring and managing supply chain emissions therefore plays an integral role in realising our net-zero ambitions. While companies are in a unique position to influence supplier behaviours, operations and investments, competing priorities and supply chain complexity have led to delayed action in this space.

Learnings

  • What are the biggest challenges – measurement and management – for companies seeking to decarbonise their supply chains?
  • What are some concrete steps companies can take to incentivise supply chain decarbonisation, and translate ambition into action?
  • What role does the financial sector play in incentivising supply chain behaviours, and in helping businesses navigate emerging supply chain challenges and opportunities?
  • Perspectives from finance, technology, new forms of retail, the identification of a robust inventory of GHGs, as well as the articulation of intention and engagement with suppliers and internal and external stakeholders beyond the buying-supplying level.

Post Event Actions

  • Gain insights on concrete steps companies are taking to decarbonise their supply chains and build and maintain positive relationships with suppliers.
  • Understand that the global nature of many supply chains allows companies to support decarbonisation beyond our borders.
