CFC Big Ideas was the organizer of the “Decarbonizing Value Chains” event under the Future Energy Week project, which took place on October 7.
The event started with the panel discussion, “Industry Leadership Beyond Profit”, where speakers explored how the leaders in Scope 3 Decarbonization are taking initiative to efficiently engage with suppliers, conclude meaningful partnerships, and try new approaches to fully unlocking a climate-neutral organizational structure and facilitating a slower temperature rise worldwide.
The event featured some of the top global decarbonization experts, including Stuart Broadley, CEO at Energy Industries Council, Dorethe Nielsen, Vice President of Corporate Environmental Strategy at Novo Nordisk, Virginia Covo, Global Director of Climate Action at AB InBev, Steffen Schwartz-Höfler, Head of Group Sustainability at Continental AG, and Maurice Loosschilder, Head of Sustainability at Signify.
Stuart Broadley described the panelists as being “World-class leaders in moving forward with sustainability transformation, stemming from their core values and beliefs.” Stuart also commented on the discussion, saying, “This panel is going to put to shame the progress that the energy industry is making. The normal understanding of leadership has long been about hitting financial targets, but it has drastically changed over the last couple of years.”
The discussion was followed by presentations of the companies’ supply chain decarbonization programs.
