Empowering Supply Chain Decarbonization Through Industry Collaboration

We’ve all heardteamwork makes the dream work” and achieving net zero is no exception, especially when it comes to scope 3 emissions – emissions that result from assets not owned or controlled by the reporting organization, but that the organization indirectly affects in its value chain. Join the 2024 cohort of CBSR Sustainable Procurement Fellows and program alumni to learn how industry collaborations can slash GHG emissions in your supply chain. Participants in this session will explore how to sync your organization’s goals, resources and standards with industry peers, as well as how a unified approach can better influence suppliers to make the net-zero switch.

Progress Over Perfection: Navigating Sustainability Realities

Now more than ever we cannot let the fear of failure or the pursuit of perfect prevent us from taking action.

Zeroing In: Meeting Interim Targets to Net Zero Emissions and Beyond

By the end of 2024 we will be halfway to 2030 and halfway through the Decade of Action necessary to meet netzero emissions and other key sustainability goals by 2050.

Join us for this interactive workshop where we will explore how to drive tangible results at pace, by setting, prioritizing, and meeting effective interim plans that will help your organization reach destination net zero, and beyond.

This session is for everyone who wants to learn more about IE, how to navigate the crossroads between environmental and social justice, and how to apply it to your work to create a more inclusive and regenerative future for all.
