Gold Standard will be in New York for Climate Week, participating in a number of events including the UN Secretary General's 2019 Climate Action Summit and a corporate-focused workshop. 

ValueChange: How to tackle Scope 3 emissions

This program will showcase how companies can work to reduce climate impact up and down their value chains, reporting in alignment with the GHG Protocol and with recognition toward their Science Based Targets. It will feature case studies from large food and beverage companies with a focus on nature-based solutions, highlighting their challenges and solutions for credible impact quantification and reporting.

Hosted with SustainCERT and featuring WWF, CDP, WRI (TBC) and corporate partners including Mars and Danone.

Key questions the session will address:

  • What are the key challenges and solutions in implementation? How to take advantage of collective action and supplier engagement and training.
  • How can you credibly account for reductions from these interventions? The discussion explores both upstream and downstream, and with specifics of carbon removals from soil sequestration.
