With ambitious carbon reduction goals set at COP26 in Glasgow, many organisations are now spearheading a wide range of initiatives in this field. The advantages to participation are diverse. From complying with increasing government regulations through to engaging Generation Z employees, all sectors are prioritising the race to Net Zero carbon emissions.
On September 8th, a group of leaders responsible for sustainability at their organisation ranged from financial sector to not-for-profit talked about how companies can measure and reduce carbon emissions over time. Speakers from BrightGen & Salesforce, along with the experts from sustainability consultancy, Auditel, helped inspire discussion around two key themes:
- Measuring Scope 3 emissions
- Reporting and compliance on achieving net zero carbon
The discussion was held over a three-course dinner at a central London restaurant that prides itself on its sustainable practices.
