Scope 3 reduction in focus – Climate Transformation Summit brings together international and cross-industry climate expertise


Berlin, March 29th, 2023 – On May 11th and 12, the online Climate Transformation Summit 2023 (#CTS2023) will enable cross-industry knowledge transfer on Scope 3 reduction. International climate experts such as Paula Caballero, the “Inventor of the SDGs”, David Carlin (TCFD), Daniel Mazure (UN Global Compact), Anna Rathmann (Jane Goodall Institute) and Sonja Bhonsle (Carbon Disclosure Project) will share their expertise and meet climate practitioners from IKEA, Ericsson, Orange, Danone, Ørsted and Deutsche Bahn, among others. The summit is organized by The Climate Choice, the climate intelligence platform empowering the decarbonization of companies and their supply chains.

Why focus on Scope 3? CO2 emissions from the supply chain are on average 11.4 times higher than direct emissions, but at the same time particularly difficult to reduce, as data and collaboration is missing. A recent survey by the Science Based Targets initiative found that only 6% of companies with science-based climate targets work with specific supplier data. Leading initiatives such as the World Economic Forum, Science Based Targets initiative or Carbon Disclosure Project now point out more than ever the big need for data-driven action in decarbonizing Scope 3. 

At #CST2023, the Climate Community of climate experts, practitioners, enthusiasts and change makers will share best practices and discuss together:

The Climate Community will get to the bottom of these questions. In interactive panels, workshops and an online fair, all participants will discuss the current challenges together with over 50 speakers, workshop hosts and exhibitors. The goal is both interdisciplinary exchange and future-oriented cooperation beyond the confines of one’s own company. 

Lara Obst, Co-Founder and CEO of The Climate Choice, explains: “Companies today face three big hurdles in Scope 3 reduction: Lack of data from suppliers, the resulting poor verifiability of climate actions, and finally, insufficient sharing of best practices. At the Climate Transformation Summit 2023, we therefore find out together how companies can holistically manage their climate targets within the company and along the supply chain through data-driven and automated processes and support their suppliers on the decarbonization journey.”

The #CTS2023 will be held online and in English as a digital climate summit for practitioners.
