To avoid the worst effects of climate change, businesses and suppliers of all sizes need to measure and reduce their carbon footprint, halving their emissions by 2030 and achieving net zero emissions by 2050.
Large corporations naturally have higher emissions compared to a small business. However, a large portion of these emissions stem from the value chain – the source of scope 3 emissions. These value chains are often made up of small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs), or businesses with under 500 employees.
In order to reach its climate targets, each business must activate their full value chain to take action. For SMEs, the benefits of taking climate action extend beyond lessening their climate impact or meeting the shared climate goals of their biggest customers. With changing customer expectations, production costs, and policy regulations, SMEs will need to prioritise climate action to maintain a competitive advantage.
In this webinar we will explain how businesses can reach their climate targets, highlighting:
- The technology allowing businesses to measure their emissions and move towards climate action
- How big businesses can engage their supply chains in the race to net zero
- The impact of value chain engagement and what it means to activate SME suppliers
And we’ll unveil the SME Climate Hub’s latest free tool, which empowers businesses to tackle climate change.
