09/15/2022 - Supply Chain Decarbonization: From Data Collection to Concrete Action

September 15th, 2022, 1 pm to 2 pm CET

Today, companies are being called upon by consumers, investors and politicians to play an active role in climate transformation and to reduce CO2. Since up to 90% of their emissions are generated in the supply chain, supplier management and procurement are increasingly becoming the focus of corporate climate strategies.

So what can procurement leaders do to speed up the decarbonization of the supply chain? First and foremost, it is important to collect validated data on the overall climate maturity of suppliers. Only on this basis can measures be derived, implemented together with suppliers, and emissions savings tracked.

In the Choice Event #43, Maximilian Droste from amc Group and Yasha Tarani from The Climate Choice will explain exactly how this works. Together they clarify questions such as:

  • What is the new role of procurement for the climate strategies of future-oriented companies?
  • What are the key challenges in climate-related data collection along the supply chain?
  • How can these be successfully addressed with new and specialized software tools?
  • How to adapt existing procurement processes to achieve pragmatic solutions throughout the supply chain?

Our Experts:

Maximilian Droste is Senior Project Manager at amc Group and an expert in strategy consulting and guiding the future transformation of purchasing and supply chain. Yasha Tarani is Co-Founder and CEO at The Climate Choice, the climate data-driven B2B platform for decarbonizing companies and their supply chains.

10/13/2022 - How the Telco Sector can Change the Game for Climate Transformation

October 13th, 2022, 1 pm to 2 pm CET

The climate impact of the ICT industry is often underestimated, yet it accounts for 3 to 4% of global CO2 emissions, about twice that of civil aviation. As a specific segment within the ICT industry, telco operators are committing to not only reduce their own emissions (scope 1 & 2) but also the emissions of their value chains (scope 3) which typically make up more than two-thirds of a telco’s total carbon emissions, and sometimes more than 90%.

To effectively address these scope 3 emissions, telco operators need to be able to collect and manage reliable and comparable data on the holistic climate maturity of their suppliers. Roman Friedrich, Managing Director and Partner at the Boston Consulting Group, will explain how this can be achieved with the help of automated solutions on the basis of AI algorithms, using practical examples at the CHOICE Event #45.

The following questions will be central:

  • Why is the telco sector so relevant for the climate transformation of the global economy?
  • What challenges do telcos need to overcome to effectively reduce their scope 3 emissions?
  • What opportunites do telcos have to help other industries become more energy efficient?
  • What trends are emerging in this regard for the future?

Our expert:

Dr. Roman Friedrich is a seasoned professional in the telecommunications industry serving telco operators across the globe with a strong focus on Germany, the Nordics, Russia, UK and Turkey. While having worked across the entire telecommunications value chain his current focus is very much on telco sustainability and on infrastructure/fiber deployment. He has developed a unique telco sustainability index that allows telco operators to measure their sustainability performance and to identify improvement levers.
