Advancing Your Climate Strategy: Emerging Best Practices for Emissions Reduction in the Supply Chain

WHEN: Wednesday, January 30, 12:00-1:00 p.m.

PRESENTERS: Carol Shu, The North Face; Carolina Leonhardt, Clif Bar

MODERATOR: Nikki Hodgson, Outdoor Industry Association

For organizations striving to be leaders on climate, the foundation of a solid climate strategy includes setting transparent goals and implementing an array of practical emissions reduction strategies. As manufacturers, the bulk of our emissions are deep in the supply chain where we have less leverage and challenges with measurement. How do we work together to address the impact of our materials, invest in emerging renewable energy markets in the areas we source from, and engage with our consumers? This session will look at emerging practices to assess and reduce scope 3 emissions, including industry collaboration around energy efficiency, renewable energy procurement and investment, land use strategies, and examples of how a few outdoor industry companies are working to better understand and reduce their own impact.

Stick around after lunch for “Must-Haves for a Successful Sustainability Strategy” and learn what every brand needs in order to establish or evolve its sustainability strategy.
