Reductions and removals: How do you integrate the two into a successful climate strategy?
28 Jun 22
Video: 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’ programs 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. We discussed how business can balance emissions reductions and removals in an effective climate strategy, with some examples of current reductions and removals programmes. We also looked at:
The headline challenges around calculating and claiming supply chain emissions removals
The opportunities to cut carbon, enhance land use, and claim benefits
Potential unintended consequences to avoid in developing guidance
Our panel included:
Conor McMahon, global climate delivery manager, Nestlé
Dr Goetz Martin, director, sustainability and strategic projects, Golden Agri-Resources
Hannah Birge, director of agriculture, Nebraska, The Nature Conservancy
Tilmann Silber, global lead, thriving nature, Barry Callebaut
The discussion was moderated by Toby Webb, founder of Innovation Forum.
This webinar was hosted in partnership with Nestlé.
