Scope 3 emissions can account for 80% or more of a company’s total emissions, particularly in companies that lease their real estate to third parties. There is growing pressure from customers, regulators and governments 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 from real estate can be difficult to measure and manage, however. Collecting clear and accurate data can be challenging, especially if only part of an asset is leased, such as one floor of an office building, and landlords do not always prioritise emissions from their buildings, meaning a business’ power to address scope 3 emissions in this area can be limited. With many exchanges tightening of emissions reporting for larger listed corporates, and the struggle for UK and EU companies to be compliant with upcoming EU regulation mandating scope 3 reporting on leased assets, the need for cross-value chain collaboration has never been higher.
By invitation only, the roundtable on Combating Scope 3 Emissions in Real Estate provides a platform for senior sustainability, property/asset management and technology executives from leading corporates and public agencies, to share perspectives on the challenges of reducing scope 3 emissions from upstream and downstream leased properties, the different technological and operational solutions adopted to reduce emissions, and how we foster collaboration across this area to reduce scope 3 emissions from this area, as the urgency to reach Net Zero intensifies.
