The Five Key Pillars of Decarbonizing Corporate America:

  • Business Strategy and Net Zero
    To align with the 1.5-degree pathway and limit global warming, leaders must develop strategies that pivot their businesses towards sustainable growth and achieve net-zero emissions. This requires fostering internal engagement and effectively communicating the value of sustainable initiatives. Understand how to deliver a net-zero business while delivering growth.
  • Deploying Climate Technologies
    The climate crisis demonstrates a multi-trillion dollar opportunity, much of this is represented in investment in clean technologies. The solutions and technologies are out there but ambiguity surrounds certain solutions, and others aren’t being scaled to a point of commercial feasibility. Companies need to accelerate investment into key decarbonization technologies. Hear how they’re finding the solutions that fit into the vision of a net zero future and promoting them to create vital economies of scale.
  • Energy Optimization
    Developing new energy efficiencies is becoming increasingly challenging for executives to due high costs in relation to Scope 1 projects and limited influence and transparency in Scope 3. Both require building extensive business cases, raising awareness and proof of profitability to get projects off the ground. Understand what options are on the market in order to optimize energy usage in order to future proof your business.
  • Scope 3 Data Collection
    The majority of companies don’t have enough clarity around their data to confidently build a transition plan. Moving away from spend-based data and modelling assumptions is a crucial step in identifying all your Scope 3 emissions data. Discover how companies are collecting high quality emissions data to achieve a sharper insight into their Scope 3 emissions.
  • Value Chain Decarbonization
    To meet net zero goals, companies must adopt a new mindset to data, strategy and investments across the whole value chain. Carbon reductions need to be happening both up and downstream – your net zero journey is dependent on your suppliers and customers making the right, sustainable choices. Learn how to build influence and action across your value chain to support real decarbonization of the business.
