Demystifying Scope 3 Emissions: Why They Are Crucial for Your Business

Monday, March 11 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. | Sustainability Theater Powered by Guidehouse

Scope 3, or supply chain emissions, can account for up to 95% of a company’s total greenhouse gas footprint. Still, fewer than 18% of companies report them, and awareness about the entire carbon emissions process is still in its infancy. Scope 3 emissions can be daunting as they cover a broad range of sources along your supply chain, including raw materials, packaging, shipping and logistics, waste disposal, and even employee commuting. Without direct control over your suppliers’ operations, it may seem impossible to calculate, let alone reduce, your Scope 3 emissions, but it doesn’t have to be. Your organization can begin to manage and reduce your emissions after this session by:

  • Determining your top-emitting Scope 3 categories 
  • Collecting the data and calculating your Scope 3 footprint
  • Engaging your supply chain 

Tracking your Scope 3 emissions will help you stabilize your supply chain by reducing risks and finding opportunities. Through strategic supply chain engagement, it is possible to empower suppliers to take climate action, reduce their emissions, and, therefore, reduce your own.

Carbon Emissions Metrics: Uncovering Your Risks and Opportunities

Monday, March 11 from 1:30 to 2:15 p.m. | Sustainability Theater Powered by Guidehouse

Climate reporting is increasingly becoming the business norm, demanded by capital markets and consumers alike. Disclosing your emissions brings wide-reaching business benefits, from brand value to risk management and getting ahead of regulations. For example, according to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), 86% of companies agree that disclosing climate-related data helps protect and improve organizational reputation, and 76% of companies said that specifically reporting through CDP has helped boost their competitive advantage.  

Disclosing your data not only allows you to track and share your progress but also allows you to uncover risks and opportunities. For example, companies expect $1.3 trillion of financial impacts over the next five years from environmental risks. Additionally, the top 200 largest companies worldwide have reported cumulative gains of realizing business opportunities related to climate change at $2.1 trillion.  

What could you be risking? What opportunities could you unveil? How will you use disclosing as your secret sauce? Join this session to learn more about how to track and share your climate journey, including: 

  • Select reporting options that align with your organization
  • Disclose with transparency and confidence
  • Continuously improving your reporting scores

Keeping up with GHG Emissions Guidance: How to Manage the Rapidly Changing Global Landscape

Monday, March 11 from 3:30 to 4:15 p.m. | Sustainability Theater Powered by Guidehouse

Tuesday, March 12 from 2:30 to 3:15 p.m. | Sustainability Theater Powered by Guidehouse

Wednesday, March 13 from 3:30 to 4:15 p.m. | Sustainability Theater Powered by Guidehouse

Submitting science-based targets, reporting your data, and keeping up with the latest guidance from the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol could be a full-time job, and for some people, it is! Companies can recognize the importance of climate action but may not have adequate resources to keep up with the rapidly changing climate change guidance. With new regulations and guidance coming out on what feels like an annual basis, knowing how to approach GHG emission reduction can feel like an ever-moving target.  

For example, in 2022, the Science Based Target Initiative (SBTi) released the world’s first standard method to set targets for companies in land-intensive sectors. In 2023, the GHG Protocol also updated its guidance on calculating GHG emission footprints, calling for specific Forest, Land, and Agriculture (FLAG) footprints. In 2024, it is expected that SBTi will release version II of their land-intensive sector (i.e., FLAG-specific targets) to align with the guidance from the GHG protocol. These are critical protocols to understand for your business, starting now. 

Staying connected with the rapidly changing guidance can be the difference between your organization leading the pack or falling behind. What is your strategy to use these changes as opportunities for success rather than risks? Join us for this session to learn how to: 

  • Be prepared to adapt to changing decarbonization requirements
  • Use tools and resources to help keep your decarbonization approaches agile
  • Identify subject matter experts to help guide you along your climate journey
