British Retail Consortium invites you to their event

Monitor, Measure and Report Supply Chain Scope 3 Emissions

About this event

The BRC Climate Action Roadmap is the industry-led initiative designed to get the UK retail industry, and its supply chains, to Net Zero by 2040.

The Roadmap has 5 key Pathways. This webinar is linked to Pathway 4, focused on helping retailers tackle emissions in the supply chain.

In partnership with IBM, our Pathway 4 Partner, we have produced a new Guide ‘Monitor, Measure and Report Supply Chain Scope 3 Emissions’.

The Guide includes information and advice on how retailers can implement initiatives to monitor, measure, and report on their supply chain Scope 3 emissions.

During this webinar, we’ll walk colleagues through the Guide and explain how retailers can use it within their own organization and in conjunction with their supply chain partners.

It will also provide a great opportunity to put questions direct to the IBM experts and Guide authors.
