Calculating scope 3 emissions and product carbon footprint is a pressing challenge for companies, pushed by rising consumer transparency expectations, legislative disclosure requirements and market authorities’ campaigns against greenwashing. Accessing and calculating data is complex, more so when involving the entire value chain to deliver a carbon footprint for a product’s entire life cycle.
Can tech solutions facilitate this process, by making data management and analysis easier and faster, while keeping focus on supplier engagement for primary data collection and reduction discussions? Join us to discover a science-based solution which combines LCA expertise, tools for supply chain and product mapping, and on-the-ground data verification - allowing companies to make data-driven decisions towards their climate goals.
Attendees of this webinar will learn:
- How to avoid the pitfalls of product LCA
- The combined strength of expertise, tech, and boots on the ground
- Ways to activate the value chain for the common goal of global net-zero emissions
