Reducing GHGs in the apparel sector: How companies can trace, measure and reduce emissions beyond scope 2

Clock icon 10:00 - 11:00
According to the now infamous IPCC report, to limit global temperatures to 1.5 degrees, GHG emissions must fall 45% by 2030 and to zero by 2050. It is estimated that the fashion industry accounts for roughly 8% of total global emissions. That amounts to 1.2 billion tonnes of CO2 equivalent (CO2e) per year, which is more emissions than aviation and shipping industries. 
 
We have the data and it couldn’t be clearer. The fashion industry needs to drastically reduce its climate impact across both supply chains and operations, and do so in double quick time. A recent report by the Global Fashion Agenda found that fashion is actually slowing down when it comes to improving its environmental impact. Companies are making pledges, announcing targets and signing charters, but effectively implementing these is often easier said than done. The practicalities and realities of reducing GHGs in the apparel sector are ever-present.   
 
This session will look at how companies can deliver measurable reductions in GHGs across the value chain. We’ll look at leading initiatives in the space, while also assessing the challenges companies face when implementing pledges and getting beyond scope 2 to reduce indirect emissions.
