Developing Emission Inventories for Corporate Greenhouse Gas Reporting and Setting Reduction Goals

Developing Emission Inventories for Corporate Greenhouse Gas Reporting and Setting Reduction Goals
Wednesday, November 10, 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm ET

Investors are recognizing the importance for corporations to reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint and develop a plan to manage climate change-induced risks to their operations and supply chain. Larry Flink, CEO of BlackRock, stated in 2020, “We believe that sustainability should be our new standard for investing." Since then, numerous other investment organizations have followed BlackRock’s lead. Net zero or carbon neutral claims can vary significantly from one company to the next depending on the emissions included, the timeframe, and how the reductions are achieved.
This webinar will explain how to develop GHG emission inventories and set reduction goals for corporate greenhouse gas reporting, including the more difficult to calculate Corporate Value Chain, Scope 3 indirect emissions. A case study for setting GHG reduction goals and insights into the journey one company is taking to achieve their goals is included.
