Audio: As companies strive to meet their net-zero targets, they must rapidly reduce their supply chain emissions. Leading companies are beginning to go one step further to develop ‘insetting’ programmes that actively remove carbon from the atmosphere. In the complex world of carbon accounting, it is still unclear who can count a carbon removal and when.
This webinar assessed the frameworks that are needed to incentivise the right actions from brands. There was discussion on how business can balance emissions reductions and removals in an effective climate strategy, with some examples of current reductions and removals programmes. The expert panel also considered:
the headline challenges around calculating and claiming supply chain emissions removals;
the opportunities to cut carbon, enhance land use, and claim benefits; and
potential unintended consequences to avoid in developing guidance.
