All about Carbon: The journey to Net Zero, carbon offsetting and scope 3 emissions
Date: 29 June 2021
Time: 14:00-15:00 UK time (13:00-14:00 UTC)
During this webinar ‘All about Carbon’ our experts will help you to discover crucial aspects of business that will affect your journey to Net Zero, including emissions reduction, carbon offsetting and application of the principles of the circular economy.
Greenhouse gas emissions are categorised into three groups or 'Scopes' by the most widely-used international accounting tool, the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol.
- Scope 1 covers direct emissions from owned or controlled sources
- Scope 2 covers indirect emissions from the generation of purchased electricity, steam, heating and cooling consumed by the reporting company
- Scope 3 includes all other indirect emissions that occur in a company’s value chain
Measuring and working to reduce scope 3 emissions can be a particularly complex process as you attempt to account for emissions for your entire product lifecycle. During this webinar we will discuss the options open to organizations relating to measuring and reducing their emissions, with a particular focus on scope 3 emissions.
It is unlikely that energy intensive industries will be able to fully decarbonise without carbon offsetting. Uncover examples of how companies are utilizing carbon offsetting in their journey to net zero and identify where to start when designing your carbon offsetting strategy and plan.
