For many companies, Scope 3 emissions account for more than 75% of their carbon footprint – rising to as much as 99% for some sectors. Tackling these emissions is critical if we are to make Net Zero a reality, and while large corporates are setting Scope 3 targets and committing to decarbonizing their value chains, many businesses are still struggling to take action.
Scope 3 emissions are by nature a collective challenge, and a complex one. Getting answers and solutions to achieve Scope 3 emission reductions and credibly report on the impact achieved is an absolute priority, and it has been a key focus of the Value Change Initiative since 2017. Since then, we have focused on making Scope 3 operationable trough the implementation of Market Based Mechanisms.
On September 20, join us for Climate Week’s premier Scope 3 event. Together with leading experts and companies, let’s explore and discuss solutions to accelerate action when traceability is imperfect, enable collaboration and partnerships, and make Net Zero value chains a reality in today’s Scope 3 landscape.
Please note that this event is for free:
Please kindly note that only the plenary session and the “Claims and value chain interventions” session will be live streamed. More information will be shared in due course.
Value Change Initiative (VCI) will be taking photos at this event. These images will be used by Value Change Initiative and SustainCERT to share news about the event, and to publicize our activities and future events. Images may be used in press releases, printed publicity and published on the Value Change Initiative website and social media pages. They will be stored securely, and we will delete them after they are no longer needed for publicity purposes. If you would prefer not to be photographed, please identify yourself to a Value Change Initiative or event staff member during the event.
To make net-zero value chains possible by 2050, we need organizations committed to delivering positive environmental and social impact up and down their value chains. This requires the courage to challenge the status quo, as well as new ways and means to make change happen.
Driven by SustainCERT and Gold Standard, the Value Change Initiative is a multistakeholder forum bringing together some of the world’s largest companies, leading civil society actors and internationally recognized frameworks to collectively define how to address and account for greenhouse gas emission reductions across global value chains.
Together we move beyond theory; learning, testing, and co-creating consensus-driven guidance to drive down Scope 3 emissions following Best Practice.
