Decarbonising Supply chains: The Next Level of Collective Action

Thursday 25th November 2021

Theatre :  Food & Drink  Scope 3  Sustainability and Net Zero 


Over the past few years, companies have incorporated systems for reducing Scope 1 & 2 emissions into their own business operations, but in the Food and Drink manufacturing Sector, over 90% of companies’ carbon emissions come from the supply chains. It is essential therefore that in reducing the carbon footprints of products, engaging with suppliers at each stage of the value chain is critical to driving down emissions beyond their own operations and to deliver the UK’s Net Zero target.

For that reason, a growing number of leading companies are engaging with their suppliers about managing Scope 3 emissions.

This panel of sustainability professionals across the farm to fork value chain will discuss the opportunities and challenges to reducing emissions, and the practical steps that can be taken and indeed business opportunities that are present across the sector from farming to manufacturing and the end consumer.
