We talk so much about it but what does it actually mean to a procurement organization? This session is a benchmark session where you draw from each others experiences!
How are you preparing for Scope 3 in your corporate sustainability transformation?
Winning the marathon to save the planet is not a one company nor one function job. Collaborating across organizations and industries will be a must. Where are you on your journey and what actions are you taking?
Scope 1 is direct emissions. Scope 2 is emissions associated with a company’s purchased energy such as electricity. Scope 3 is everything else, such as building materials, food, travel, even waste. It’s the emissions associated with all the goods and services that companies buy. ”For most organizations, including government agencies and universities, the Scope 3 footprint is much larger than the operational footprint.” (Anastasia O’Rourke)
We see companies setting “net-zero” or science-based targets to reduce their emissions around the world and during this session you will come together to discuss what this, other targets and Scope 3 mean and will mean to procurement organizations. Emissions might be further down in the supply chain where you don’t have direct contact with the supplier. How do you gain control and how do you prioritize?
- Where are you on your sustainability journey – are you at Scope 3 yet?
- How do you prioritize efforts across your purchase volume and category spread?
- Are you using input-output lifecycle assessments and average emissions by sector or make calculation with real data from suppliers or providers — or both?
- What have your climate and CSR strategies meant to procurement to date?
- How are you coming together and collaborating with other large buyers?
