Creating a futureproof carbon management strategy

Investor pressure and climate change policies, including TCFD, are driving carbon emissions reduction strategies. With intense scrutiny of balance sheet climate risks, firms are urgently trying to assess their carbon financial impact, however few firms have invested in the underlying data management, workflow and analytics capabilities needed to calculate the cost of decarbonization and deliver on net zero strategies. This session will provide insight and guidance for creating a futureproof digital carbon management strategy that satisfies stakeholder demands.

Best Practices: Planning For Net Zero Carbon Buildings

The concept of low carbon buildings has been evolving since the 1990s, but today the concept of net zero carbon buildings takes the ambition further by aiming for buildings with zero carbon impact over their lifetime. This session considers how CSOs should align with facilities and operations directors and provides guidance on driving action to achieve net zero at the building level.

13:15 GMT Day 1 Panel 45 minutes

The Roadmap to TCFD Success

With a growing number of firms facing regulatory pressure to align with TCFD requirements, and many other countries following with similar regulation, there remains confusion about how best to integrate the recommendations of the TCFD into broader ESG and sustainability management strategies. This session examines the best practices for aligning with TCFD and which services, projects and technologies firms should invest in to inform their TCFD strategy and ensure success.

Supply chain transparency: Shining a spotlight on Scope 3 reporting

Customers, investors and regulators are all pushing for firms to provide greater visibility and accountability in the supply chain. In addition, across all regions, organizations establishing net zero emissions targets validated by SBTi will have to back up their statements with data from across their operations, extending into their supply chains for scope 3 emissions data. The biggest challenge for CSOs, and their number one priority, is improving supply chain sustainability performance metrics. This session debates the best practices and tools available to accurately collect scope 3 emissions information.

The green-eyed monster: Avoiding greenwashing allegations

Governments globally are in the midst of a crack-down on greenwashing. Currently, the market for ESG scores for equities is unregulated and unsupervised with a lack of standardisation across scoring, yet investors demand visibility over which firms are truly sustainable and climate friendly. As the extensive greenwashing epidemic begins the path to eradication, how can firms ensure they align with greenwashing mitigation regulations? This session explores the data required to support company statements and considers how to use this information to build trust with your target audience.

Best Practices: Creating An RFP For Enterprise Carbon Management Software
