Webinar: The decarbonisation of supply chains

3 November

Climate change requires to rethink how industries and supply chain operate. This is one of the ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) imperatives that companies are facing.

This is caused by greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere that prevent heat from escaping earth. To be able to leave on earth, we need to radically reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions. The largest emission comes from carbon. As part of the 2016 Paris Agreement’s country representatives have decided that they aim to keep the rise of global temperature below 2 °C above pre-industrial levels, and preferably at 1.5 °C

Since companies have started to commit to become carbon neutral or to achieve net-zero targets on climate change Their commitment cover direct emissions from their business operations and indirect emissions from downstream an upstream along the supply chain. Procurement is therefore expected to play a key role in achieving these targets.

The webinar aims at demystifying what this means for buyers and to provide practical suggestions on how to move forward on the topic.

This webinar will:

  • Present the stakes associated with climate change and the decarbonation of supply chains
  • Describe the difference between carbon neutral and net zero
  • Introduction to what this means in terms of :
    • Internal and external communication
    • Role of procurement in upstream and downstream impact
    • Integration in strategy, goals, and targets
    • Integration in the procurement process
    • Measurement of impacts and digitalisation of the measurement
    • Integration in supplier selection
    • Integration in supplier relationship management
    • Breakthrough projects with some suppliers
    • Industry standards and industry initiatives
