Effective solutions that tackle supply chain emissions: What are the mechanisms that deliver scope 3 reductions at scale?
09:30 - 10:00
Scope 3 emissions account for the majority of the overall carbon footprint of most corporations. Insetting, or offsetting emissions through carbon reduction projects within a company’s own value chain, provides an opportunity for businesses to lower value chain emissions and make a positive impact in the landscapes they operate in. However, insetting has not yet been widely adopted across the board. In this session we’ll assess:
- What mechanisms exist to drive emissions reductions at scale?
- The opportunities and potential of insetting as a mechanism to drive emissions reductions
- How can technical frameworks be adjusted to ensure that brands are incentivised to do the right thing?
- How the GHG protocol can help corporations understand and communicate the impacts of actions
