Tackling the climate crisis requires a multi-faceted approach, but energy efficiency and rapid decarbonization are crucial components of any comprehensive strategy. During this panel, we will explore how these two factors can contribute to mitigating climate change. We will explore:

  • Understanding the various categories and sources of emissions relevant to your industry and operations
  • Navigating reporting guidelines, methodologies, and emission factors prescribed by regulatory bodies or standards organizations like the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and the Greenhouse Gas Protocol
  • Identifying your emissions sources that are most material to your organization and best practices for conducting a materiality assessment
  • Seeking input from key suppliers, customers, industry associations, and experts to better understand the Scope 3 emissions associated with your value chain to gather valuable data and insights
