Tackling the Scope 3 emissions challenge is the next big frontier for business action. Leading on Scope 3 collaboration has and will continue to require organisations to rethink how they engage and support suppliers. It is crucial to take a more collaborative approach to co-create solutions and adopt long-term changes that support stakeholders and create value for both buyers and suppliers. But there are still some unanswered questions: how to share data, what to do about reporting fatigue, and who should pay for all of it? 

This roundtable aims to: 

  • Share best practice, advice, and lessons learnt from current supplier engagement programmes and objectives.
  • Understand how to measure success and engagement, what works and what needs to be improved.
  • Improve efficacy of engagement through cross sector and cross industry learnings.
  • Enable radical collaboration across and between industries to deepen Scope 3 emissions collaboration and create resiliency across the sectors.
