Organizations are pledging to reduce their Scope 3 emissions generated throughout their supply chains. That is a big step since according to McKinsey, Scope 3 accounts for 80 percent of most organization’s overall climate impact. Making a pledge in the boardroom is one thing. Delivering and creating a carbon neutral supply chain is another. Hear from Kristin Watkins, Director of ESG Advisory and Intra Industry Investment Banking at Truist, about how to get started on your sustainability commitments.
The webinar covers a wide range of topics including:
- What are some of the ways that companies are currently reporting their GHG emissions and reduction targets?
- Why is Scope 3 critical to so many company’s emissions reduction strategies? What are some of the current challenges with Scope 3 reporting?
- How are companies engaging with stakeholders on sustainable supply chain initiatives?
- What is driving the investment of capital and investor engagement outside of “green” interest?
- Walk through a few examples of how companies in various industries have gone about this in the past including biofuels, ingredients, CPG, cotton and more.
