Power Panel: Measuring, validating and reporting on Scope 3 emissions

James Chamberlayne | Director of Sustainable Finance Program | CDP

Eliza Mahdavy-Turcat | CSR Director | Enedis

Harold Pauwels | Director Standards | Global Reporting Initiative (GRI)

Measuring scope 3 emissions can be a daunting task. In this session, we will look at the best available strategies for measurement and management of Scope 3 emissions within the framework of CSRD compliance and the new IFRS S1 and S2 standards. 

Key discussion areas:

  • Key approaches to tracking Scope 3 in Supply Chains 
  • Identify hotspots in Supply Chain
  • Engaging with indirect and direct suppliers to report data on their carbon, water, and ‘waste footprint’
  • Working closely with partners and suppliers to measure and manage

9:00 - 9:30

Power Panel: Collecting Consistent, Comparable Data to measure Scope 3 emissions

Colin Seward | Chief Sustainability Office (CSO) - Technology and Data Lead | Cisco

Helle Hommelgaard Herk-Hansen | Vice President Environment | Vattenfall

Scope 3 is where over 70% of the company data challenges lie. In order to accurately collect data, businesses must engage with their suppliers to ensure they are implementing reporting best practices across the value chain.

Key discussion areas:

  • Utilizing technology to collect standardized data
  • Benchmark against leading CSRD frameworks
  • Adopt cross-functional operations to capture data carbon, water, and ‘waste footprint’

9:30 - 10:00

10:00 - 10:30

Power Panel: Scope 3 leadership - How do you tackle the Scope 3 challenge?

Geraldine Lin Bagger | Vice President, Sustainability & Corporate Communication | DLF Seeds

A holistic view of scope 3 emissions is required to enable data-driven decarbonization. The goal of measuring and tracking Scope 3 is to empower business leaders to make informed business decisions that mitigate the effects of climate change.

Key discussion areas:

  • Prioritizing efforts for maximum impact
  • Setting ambitious and achievable targets
  • Engaging and reporting within the organization

10:30 - 11:00

Power Panel: Automating Processes and Systems for Scope 3 data collection

To meet the  CSRD requirements, sustainability data management needs to be automated, trustworthy, audit-ready, and fit to inform decision-making and investor requirements.

Key discussion areas:

  • Preparing for the shift from manual to automated data collection
  • Which systems need to be implemented, and when
  • Integrating disparate data sources for compliance

11:00 - 11:30

Power Panel: Gap Analysis - Identify the Holes in your Reporting Program

Andy Bolitho | Associate Director Net Zero Lead for Responsible Business | Mace

With the CSRD deadline looming, the challenge many companies face is where they focus their efforts to bridge data, process, and reporting gaps.

Key discussion areas:

  • Identifying weaknesses and gaps in your Scope 3 reporting practices 
  • Leveraging new systems and processes to fill the gaps
  • Preparedness for systems and processes to meet incoming regulations

11:30 - 12:00

12:00 - 12:15

Keynote: Scope 3 Reporting: Collaborating and engaging with suppliers to map the value chain

Richard Barker | Board Member | IFRS (ISSB)

The CSRD requires companies to disclose their Scope 3 emissions. To do this companies need to map the value chain and understand their Scope 3 data to ensure they are presenting accurate information. 

Key discussion areas:

  • Learn how to standardize differing reporting capabilities and inaccurate data from suppliers 
  • Explore strategies to strengthen disclosure built on estimated data
  • Gain new techniques to effectively engage and upskill your suppliers to build robust data networks

Power Panel: Navigating through Reporting and Verification standards

Richard Barker | Board Member | IFRS (ISSB)

In this session, we explore how existing reporting frameworks such as the Global Reporting Initiative ( GRI ) and the International Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (ISSB) can be applied to Scope 3 reporting and the CSRD.

Key discussion areas:

  • Deep dive into GRI and ISSB (IFRS S1 & IFRS S2)
  • Introduction to third-party verification and assurance processes
  • How to merge these standards into the unified reporting framework

12:45 - 13:15

Networking Lunch
