Value chains hold the key to 90% of emission reductions. This makes it extremely important to know your entire value chain and calculate the total amount of emissions generated by your actions. This way you can uncover the emission hotspots of your value chain and reduce your emissions systematically. Disclosing your value chain carbon footprint is not only a matter of compliance but a way to earn the trust of your stakeholders and identify risks in all of your business’s upstream and downstream activities.
In this on-demand webinar, originally streamed as part of the Green Chair LIVE event Marjolein Koopman, Head of Sourcing Sustainability at Kalmar shares the key approaches to reduce value chain emissions and discusses how to tackle the complexity of the value chain. In addition, she sheds light on Kalmar’s own carbon footprint, and where our own emissions are created.
In addition, Thomas Hörnfeldt, VP Sustainability Business in SSAB, Nordic’s largest producer of commercial steel, shares about the potential of zero emission steel for our industry.
At the end of this session, we will also have a panel discussion where we answer questions from the audience.
