ONLINE WORKSHOP | Science Based Targets Initiative Scope 3 Value Chain Emissions

26 May

10:00 am - 1:15 pm

Event Details

The Global Compact Network Australia (GCNA), WWF-Australia and thinkstep-anz invite you to a hands-on workshop to explore practical approaches to setting a scope 3 emissions target as part of the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).

More than 860 companies, representing 45 sectors from 46 countries around the world have set Science-based Targets to help keep global warming to 1.5 degrees above pre-industrial levels. Together, the operational emissions of these companies total more than 1 billion tonnes of carbon — more than the annual emissions of Germany.

However, for most companies setting, implementing and evaluating scope 3 emissions targets remains a challenge. This online workshop will provide participants with the opportunity to share their experiences and learn directly from technical and industry experts.

Through hands-on activities, companies will identify their barriers to getting started as well as the best tactics to overcome these barriers. Additionally, participants will have the opportunity to scope their full carbon footprint — including in relevant Scope 3 categories.


Key topics that will be covered in the online workshop include:

  • Business drivers and investor requirements around carbon targets
  • Practical approaches to setting a Scope 3 target
  • Scope 3 challenges and opportunities
  • Industry case studies
  • Approaches that are available for setting a science-based target



  • Monica Richter, Senior Manager Low Carbon Futures, WWF Australia
  • Corinne Schoch, Senior Adviser, Global Compact Network Australia
  • Barbara Nebel, CEO, thinkstep-anz
  • Ian Lieblich, Sustainability Manager, Investa
  • Jane Mansfield, General Manager Quality, Environment and Sustainability, Asaleo Care
  • More Industry Participants TBC

Community of Practice:

In 2019, the Global Compact Network Australia and WWF-Australia entered a partnership to support the uptake of Science Based Target (SBT) setting by Australian companies. In 2020, we will continue to support this initiative by working with a range of partners and providing a number of webinars and workshops to help increase awareness and build capacity across businesses to set and commit to a SBT.
