This report identifies a series of recommendations from our Shifting systems – Supply chains roundtable, co-hosted with The Estée Lauder Companies. The report highlights several action areas for organisations to lead on Scope 3 emission reductions.
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.
Many organisations are taking similar and interconnected approaches. This is a summary of the key elements participants shared on how to tackle Scope3 emissions and effectively collaborate across supply chains
- Create a 'climate school'
- Collaborate for success
- Streamline your reporting
- Stay on top of data collection
- Embed sustainability into your corporate identity
More information on each key area is available in the full report.
