About Event

More than 90% of S&P 500 companies and 70% of Russell 1000 companies publish ESG reports in some form in 2022. Over 13,000 companies, which cover 64% of global market cap, reported to CDP in 2022. 

While as much as 75% of the total corporate emissions are estimated to come from Scope 3, over 80% of companies report that quantifying Scope 3 is difficult. Why? According to a survey conducted by the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), 83% of respondents said it was hard to get relevant data for Scope 3 emissions. Unfortunately, publicly available data has limited breadth or is often out of date, and collecting primary data from suppliers is costly and time-consuming. 

In this one hour webinar, you’ll learn:

  • Current data challenges with Scope 3 emissions reporting

  • Pathways toward 100% primary data

  • Role of high quality secondary data as a catalyst for achieving 100% primary data  

Three speakers will share their experience and visions, each speaker with a unique perspective: (1) a sustainability manager who gathers data and reports on Scope 3 emissions; (2) an environmental scientist who develops Scope 3 emissions factor data; and (3) a verifier who audits and reviews GHG emissions reports.

The three speakers are:
