In our latest session “Greening Global Value Chains”, which is part of our series on “The Road from COP26”, experts and practitioners from BlackRock, the World Economic Forum (WEF), Environmental Resources Management (ERM) and Brunswick Group discussed what global companies need to consider as they walk the talk on the greening of supply chains.
There is rising expectations for companies to take action on key environmental challenges in their global value chains. After COP26, the scrutiny is intensifying - corporates and investors are expected to deliver on climate change as well as biodiversity, waste, plastics and water. Many are looking at global value chains as the next frontier of climate action. The spotlight will particularly be on how companies with a global presence meet their net zero targets by tackling scope 3 emissions throughout global value chains that span different geographies around the world.
