What’s New for May:

Sustainability Summer School

The Net Zero Action Accelerator wants to help you reach your sustainability goals so we’re launching a Sustainability Summer School series to get you there. 🍎 Each month will have a new solution deep dive, and we’re kicking it off with enhancing supplier engagement for climate action and building the business case for sustainability.

Our First Lesson: Supply chains are often 90% of a company’s carbon footprint – so digging deep into solutions here can have a major impact. This can look like: 

  1. 🗣 Communicating your sustainability goals with them to set expectations and incentivize them to reduce their emissions. 
  2. 🛠️ Building their capability and capacity to reduce emissions through providing tools, training and resources.
  3. 📋 Facilitating the reporting of their emissions progress by assisting with yearly disclosures and managing their performance data. 
  4. 🎯 Developing procurement strategies that align with your sustainability goals and embed targets for suppliers.
