1: Introduction to net zero – 12th October
To kick off our Sustainability Sessions programme, Lucy will be talking about net zero and how to set
out on your journey to meet your carbon reduction targets. She’ll explain the different categories of
greenhouse gas emissions, the process of calculating your emissions to understand your
organisation’s impact, and discuss how to develop a carbon emission reduction strategy.
- What are Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions
- Measuring and reporting emissions
- Reducing your emissions
- Developing a carbon emission reduction strategy
- Next steps
2: Sustainable procurement – 30th January
As businesses dedicate continued efforts to reducing their carbon emissions, they are looking
beyond their Scope 1 and 2 emissions (related to fuel, energy and company vehicles in most cases)
to focus in on Scope 3 (which are the emissions that occur in the value chain).
For most companies, Scope 3 emissions account for a significant majority of their carbon footprint
but are the most challenging to address. In this session, we’ll discuss how to address sustainability in
the supply chain, the important of supplier engagement and how you can use your influence to drive
progress in your supply chain.
- How to prioritise Scope 3 reporting
- How to develop a sustainable procurement plan and encourage your supply chain
- Simple steps to making more sustainable procurement choices
3. The 17 UN SDGs – 9th April
In 2019, the UN released their 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and called for a Decade of
Action to accelerate the global effort to meet ambitious sustainability targets. The SDGs provide a
framework to deliver positive change around the issues such as poverty, inequality, climate change
and environmental degradation and can be used by organisations to embed sustainability at the
heart of everything you do. During this session we’ll look at the SDGs and how to take action to
incorporating the goals into your business operations and contribute to achieving them by 2030.
- The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
