About This Training

Are you struggling to make progress with upstream supply chain emissions? We all know that Scope 3 emissions are important but making progress is challenging. As companies engage with suppliers, they are often finding gaps in understanding on climate-related topics. Because of this, many leading companies are now finding themselves in the role of educator with their suppliers. Join a team from Guidehouse to explain the current landscape and best practices on supplier engagement and education with learnings from their supplier training program, Supplier LOCT.

Some of the questions we will dive deeper into:

1. What are the major challenges preventing more climate action in suppliers?
2. What kinds of goals do leading companies have for supplier education?
3. What is the current level of understanding of climate at supplier companies?
4. What kind of interest do suppliers have in learning about climate?
5. What are the biggest barriers suppliers face in making progress on climate in their companies (beyond education)?
