The Next Bold Thing in Corporate Climate Action: Adding Science-Based Targets to Your Supply Chain
2:00 pm EST
Science-based carbon emission reductions and climate targets — goals based on data rather than conjecture — are now used by well over 200 of the world’s largest companies such as Nokia, Unilever or GlaxoSmithKline. And yet, there is perhaps an even larger opportunity for climate action beyond the corporate walls, in the massive spend in their supply chains. This poses a new challenge of how to leverage the influence of this enormous corporate spend that is diffused across global networks in often in less-developed regions, and how to tackle the science-based approach to integrating such targets into supply chain monitoring to drive progress in climate action.
Among the things you’ll learn:
- Trends in corporate climate commitments and actions. Are corporations efforts bold enough?
- How do you decide where to focus first?
- The discipline of setting science-based targets and its relevance to sustainable supply chains
- Key success factors to integrate such targets in global supply chains
- Case examples of science-based targets in corporate climate initiatives
