Sharing & Learning: Climate Action in the Value Chain
Part 2 of the Sharing & Learning Series on Climate Action
Time & Location
07 Nov 2023, 10:00 – 11:30
About the event
Climate change poses significant threats to people, ecosystems, and businesses worldwide, leading to disruptions in global value chains. Mitigating climate risks requires prioritizing adaptation, resilience, Just Transition, and emissions reductions. By assessing risks, reinforcing infrastructure, and implementing adaptation measures, we can protect supply chains and build resilient systems.
Tackling scope 3 emissions can also serve as an opportunity to reinforce value chains. Often representing the largest portion of a company’s inventory, scope 3 emissions can be a great challenge to overcome, while at the same time it can also open the door for synergies and collaboration.
What you will learn
- Explore strategies and approaches to manage climate risks in the value chain
- Discuss challenges and opportunities related to tackling scope 3 emissions within value chains
- Hear from Georg Fischer and Migros on their approaches to data management and supplier engagement
