What You Will Learn

We are living through a critical decade for limiting the global temperature rise to 1.5°C. With increasing investor and government pressure on corporate transparency and disclosure on climate action, sustainable business practices are no longer a luxury, but a necessity. The call to action is clear: mitigating the effects of climate change requires bold and urgent action to decarbonize our global economy now. Companies are tasked with setting more ambitious targets across Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions to accelerate the delivery of a net-zero economy, but often lack the right strategy, action, and technology to effectively retool their approach to sustainability. There is also pressure from consumers who are seeking new ways to interact with retailers which has led to a dramatic rise in e-commerce and omnichannel retail strategies. This shift in consumer purchasing habits, combined with climate action pressures, is driving retailers to make their logistics and fulfillment strategies more resilient, efficient, and sustainable. During this session, we will discuss developing the right sustainability strategies across all scope emissions of your value chain to not only respond to market and stakeholder pressures, but also achieve corporate ambitions, identify cost-savings, develop innovations, and increase the value of supplier relationships. We will share best practices on how companies have taken leadership on climate action to devise clear steps to jumpstart their road to net-zero and build resilience within their value chain.

Key Takeaways

• Trends in the industry that are driving the need for change
• Holistic sustainability (addressing scope 2/3 emissions)
• How to reduce consumption (scope 1) via solutions like eMobility & microgrids
