Roundtable: Moving Towards Net Zero in Transport & Distribution

Thursday, 15 June 2023, 09.00-11.30 BST
Room 642, Institute of Education (IOE), 20 Bedford Way, London, WC1H 0AL

Scope 3 emissions can account for 80% or more of a company’s total emissions, particularly in industries with complex supply chains and transport operations. There is growing pressure from investors, customers and regulators for companies to address their emissions across the value chain, including Scope 3, in the move towards a more sustainable and low-carbon economy.

Scope 3 emissions can be difficult to measure and manage, however. There is a lack of verifiable information on Scope 3 impact, the external dependencies are higher and taking action is more complex. Collaboration with suppliers, clients and other stakeholders across the supply chain is therefore crucial in addressing Scope 3 emissions from transport and distribution. This is made more pertinent by upcoming legislation across the UK, EU and US on the need for more transparent reporting of Scope 3 emissions.

By invitation only, the Roundtable on Moving Towards Net Zero in Transport & Distribution provides a platform for senior executives from leading corporates, public agencies and key stakeholders in sustainability and technology to share perspectives on how technology can revolutionise fleet management, how collaboration and strong partnerships can be harnessed to move towards Net Zero and how businesses can ensure employee buy-in as the move towards Net Zero intensifies.
