Accelerated Ambition: WRI Resources for Apparel Companies: July 18, 12-1 pm, webinar
3 billion people are projected to join the global middle class in the next 15 years, placing extraordinary stress on the planet’s resources. The linear model of buying, wearing, and quickly discarding clothes is negatively impacting people and the planet’s resources. Making a pair of jeans produces as much GHGs as driving a car more than 80 miles and it takes 2,700 liters of water to make one cotton shirt, enough to meet the average person’s drinking need for two and a half years. For all to enjoy healthy, prosperous lives, we need to use fewer resources more effectively.
In this webinar, WRI experts will address:
Science-based targets and GHG emission reductions
Policy barriers and enablers affecting circularity
Renewable energy use for suppliers in developing countries
Monitoring and managing supply chain water risk
Moderator: Liz Cook, Vice President for Institutional Strategy and Development; Board Member, Sustainable Apparel Coalition
Cynthia Cummis, Director of Private Sector Climate Mitigation
Alex Perera, Deputy Director, Energy
Paul Reig, Senior Manager, Aqueduct and Corporate Engagement
Eliot Metzger, Director, Sustainable Business and Innovation
CCG Ask Me Anything: David Rich on Planned GHGP Guidance on Carbon Removals and Land Use: July 8, 12-1 pm, teleconference
Accounting for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and carbon removals from land use, land use change, and forestry (LULUCF) is important for companies to meet their climate goals. Yet many companies are unsure of how to account. A recent survey revealed a clear need for Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHGP) guidance on how companies can include these activities in their GHG reporting and targets.
David Rich from WRI’s Climate Program will brief participants on
Survey results and current business practices in accounting for carbon removals, land use, land use change, and bioenergy in GHG inventories
The opportunity to help develop new accounting guidance, building on the GHGP Corporate Standard and Scope 3 Standard
How the guidance will apply to companies’ science-based targets (SBTs)
CCG Ask Me Anything teleconferences leave at least half of the time for open discussion among members and feedback for the presenter. Please bring questions and share your thoughts! If interested in participating, email Emily Neagle.
