Sustainability will remain a top Procurement priority for many years to come, and one of the biggest opportunities to make an impact are in reducing Greenhouse Gas emissions. But where to start? Scope 3 upstream and downstream emissions, which are those resulting from the activities of your suppliers as they deliver raw materials to and finished goods from your facilities, land squarely in the hands of the sourcing team to find creative solutions in order to meet sustainability targets.
In this webinar hosted by Sourcing Industry Group and sponsored by advanced sourcing provider Keelvar, the panel will review:
- Understanding Scope 3 emissions and their implications for Procurement
- Key considerations when setting your sourcing goals and working with suppliers, especially Logistics Services Providers (LSPs)
- Practical steps and examples on how to structure sourcing events to capture and optimize for sustainability improvement
