Collaboration for Impact: Microsoft’s Supply Chain Engagement for Scope 3 Reductions
November 15 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm ESTFree
Microsoft has publicly committed to become carbon negative by 2030 by reducing scope 3 emissions, including their suppliers’ scopes 1, 2, and 3 emissions. The key challenge to this work is how to accurately measure these emissions, identify proper interventions, and then execute with suppliers to achieve Microsoft’s ambitious emissions reductions commitment. This webinar will examine how Microsoft established climate goals as a contractual expectation and sought supplier compliance through customized assurance programs.
Tim Hopper, Microsoft’s Manager for Cloud Hardware Supply Chain Sustainability, and Tim Smith, UMN Professor on Sustainable Systems and CEO, TASA Analytics, will discuss the development of Microsoft’s carbon emissions reduction supplier engagement program in detail.
