Climate Action: The Urgency of Business Leadership

A Global Forum for Business Leadership on Climate

Collaborative Action Session: BSR Collaborative Initiative: “Climate-Compatible Supply Chain”

Thursday June 12, 2014 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

This session will explore the challenges and opportunities of creating climate-compatible supply chains—supply chains comprised of communities and operations that are resilient to climate change and that have low (or zero) greenhouse gas emissions. Participants will discuss the different dimensions of climate change and corporate supply chains, looking across factories, farms, fuels, and other sectors. The conversation will address the gap between what science says is needed to ensure a sustainable future and what companies are doing in practice. BSR will unveil results from a survey about company goals, challenges, and interest in working together in this area, and will discuss the design of a new BSR collaborative initiative for climate-compatible supply chains.
