In this one-hour webcast, speakers from renewable energy company Ørsted, the Science Based Targets Initiative and Oxford Net Zero will discuss how companies of all sizes can take credible climate action. The speakers will consider questions including: What is the current state of play in corporate climate action? What constitutes credible corporate climate action and why?

Date/Time: November 4, 2021 (1-2PM ET / 10-11AM PT) California is facing power insecurity at levels unlike anything in its recent history: heightened winds and aging infrastructure, record wildfires, more frequent and longer duration outages that are both unintentional and intentional. Leaving the individuals, communities, and business looking for their own power security, and fast. In this session, we’ll dive deep into regulations and policies that are in place, those that are needed, and how this new urgency could impact microgrid adoption in California and other states facing similar conditions. Bloom will also share examples of rapidly deployed microgrids and how those examples are needed and could be replicated in today’s state of unprecedented power insecurity.

Comments Off on Supply Chain Sustainability: Moving From ‘Why’ to ‘How’

Date/Time: October 12, 2021 (1-2PM ET / 10-11AM PT) Today, supply-chain and sustainability executives are being held to a higher degree of responsibility from both customers, regulatory officials and investors. A global study by Unilever found one in three customers purchasing from brands with perceived social or environmental impact. As a result, more companies are leveraging technology to incorporate measurable sustainability improvements in their supply chains. Leading brands are setting internal targets, adjusting sourcing and procurement policies to align with the company’s ESG policies, engaging with suppliers on ESG performance and joining industry and sector networks to get educated on best practices. However, companies may have thousands of suppliers of different sizes in different locales with different ESG-related mandates, making it difficult for companies to maintain complete visibility of supply chains and hold suppliers accountable to sustainability-related goals. In this one-hour webcast, you’ll gain new insights in supply-chain transparency trends and challenges, and how companies are addressing them. You’ll also learn about new tools and technologies companies are turning to. Among the things you’ll learn: How customer expectations are changing supply-chain transparency The role technology plays in shaping supply-chain ESG compliance How to develop custom but effective sustainability programs How industry-leading organizations are finding success with ESG Moderator: John Davies, Senior Vice President & Analyst, GreenBiz Group Speakers: Mike Ford, Global Lead, EHS & Sustainability, Avetta If you can’t tune in live, please register and we will email you a link to access the archived webcast footage and resources, available to you on-demand after the webcast.
