  • Summary

Scope 3 emissions have moved front and centre in companies' GHG emissions challenge. Understanding, calculating, disclosing, and reducing these emissions will take collaboration and cooperation with suppliers and customers in ways never before imagined. This talk will clear up some common Scope 3 misunderstandings and present some outstanding examples of companies leveraging various aspects of their energy affairs capabilities in service of driving those emissions towards zero. 

Hear some fresh ideas about: 

  • the evolution of Scope 3 priorities
  • increasingly demanding Scope 3 language (ISSB, TCFD, CDP, SBTi, HKEx)
  • re-ranking energy affairs' drivers
  • carrots and sticks
  • what lies beyond engagement
