Achieving net zero within complex global supply chains would be a tough enough challenge even in the relatively stable operating context that existed before the pandemic. Now, supply chains face the additional challenge of becoming more resilient to cope with political, economic, technological and climate-driven volatility as well as meeting net zero commitments. Beginning with the big-picture context for global trade, we'll explore the practical steps supply chains are taking towards net zero, addressing questions including:

  • To what extent do today’s supply chains need to be fundamentally reimagined and redesigned to meet net zero targets while maintaining competitiveness?
  • What lessons learned can be leveraged from scope 1 & 2 initiatives to support the 80% of the “net zero iceberg’ compromised by scope 3?
  • The scope 3 ‘holy trinity’ opportunity: aligning collaboration for resilience, innovation AND sustainability.
