Industry Alignment: The Key to Product Decarbonization

Mar 13, 2024

10:00am – 11:00am CT

Retailers are natural competitors, but when it comes to climate change, there’s power in collaborating to move the entire industry forward. From lawnmowers to toasters, the products that brands sell can make up the bulk of their GHG emissions. Retailers need a consistent way to assess the climate impact of energy-consuming products, and now they can. In partnership with the Retail Industry Leaders Association, Tim Weiss, CEO of Optera, and Chris Cassell, VP of Corporate Sustainability at Lowe's, will share new data to bring consistency and accountability to scope 3, category 11, reporting.
