What's On

As Hong Kong commits to achieving carbon neutrality before 2050, there is growing pressure on businesses to play a part. For companies in Hong Kong, taking action to reduce emissions, not to mention those by their partners, can be a challenge even for something as basic as tracking emissions across an entire supply chain. Without such information, it is difficult for companies to make sound decisions, formulate effective strategies, and set realistic targets.

Join us on 24 August when Johnny Hui and Conan Lee from SGS will provide an overview of the international standards on carbon emission and common challenges when measuring supply chain emissions. The speakers will also touch on the world's first digital carbon management cloud platform, a joint initiative between SGS and Microsoft to quantify upstream and downstream emissions in value-chain activities.

Issues that will be covered during the talk include:
• Importance of carbon measurement to supply chains
• Introduction of international standards and schemes on carbon emissions
• Difficulties in measuring supply chain emissions
• Introduction of S-Carbon platform for supply chain performance measurement
• Demonstration of supply chain carbon data
