BusinessGreen Leaders Briefing – Towards Net Zero Supply Chains and Land Use
November 26, 2019
Few aspects of the net zero transition are more complex and more challenging than the need to decarbonise supply chains and land use. If cutting emissions from energy, transport, and buildings is a daunting undertaking, at least businesses have pretty direct control over the pace and direction of the net zero transition in each of these areas. But when it comes to supply chains, efforts to curb emissions inevitably involve multiple actors, considerable uncertainties, and intense debates over land use impacts, carbon sinks, and consumption patterns.
The latest BusinessGreen Leaders Briefing will bring together key stakeholder from across the green economy to explore the challenges and opportunities presented by the transition towards net zero emission supply chains. As such it will feature a series of expert speakers and case studies that will discuss the technologies, techniques, and policy debates that are shaping emissions reductions efforts across supply chains, including work to tackle deforestation, minimise reputational risks, curb agricultural emissions, and reduce manufacturing and resource impacts.
This exclusive half-day conference will look at the too easily ignored implications that the transition to a net zero economy will have for supply chain management, risk management, and global land use. As such it will investigate how the need for negative emissions technologies will place fresh pressures on land use, explore the climate-related risks that will impact all firms’ supply chains, and ask how businesses can work with suppliers to minimise these risks and optimise returns in a decarbonising economy.
