About this Session


When chemical companies begin to analyse their full supply chain greenhouse gas emissions, they find that the bulk of these lie in the emissions associated with their incoming raw materials and the disposal of their products at end of life. These upstream and downstream emissions are classified as Scope 3 emissions by the greenhouse gas protocol.  At the same time, companies are still looking to take responsibility for their full supply chain emissions and set targets around Scope 3 emissions reduction.  This session will explore what a group of companies in the industry are doing and the challenges that they face in trying to achieve this.
