BEPI Partners with myclimate Foundation to Fight Climate Change

24-05-2017

On 23 May, BEPI announced a new partnership with myclimate Foundation aimed at further supporting its participating companies in their efforts to measure and mitigate carbon emissions in their supply chain. 

This collaboration, built on a common understanding of the importance of addressing climate change in global supply chains and the essential role of businesses in this endeavour, will bring both organisations to work together on several areas:

  • Development of practical tools – myclimate Foundation will support the development of a Carbon Calculator which will be integrated into the BEPI platform.
  • Capacity building – both organisations will identify opportunities to develop joint capacity building activities to raise awareness around climate change and CO2 management.
  • Mutual support – both organisations will support each other in the important goal of promoting climate protection and environmental improvement.

myclimate will also help offset the carbon footprint of FTA’s Unleash Opportunity conference, that will be held in Brussels on 14-15 June, where this subject will be further explored in two different panel debates:   

‘Making the Cut– Measuring and Mitigating Emissions in Your Supply Chain’ (14 June, FTA members only)

This panel discussion will demonstrate how BEPI can help business to measure their scope 3 emissions and engage suppliers and producers in their carbon reduction strategies, as well as steps to take to mitigate emissions and work towards carbon neutrality.

Climate Change and the Paris Agreement: What it Means for Business’ (15 June)

This session will explore the effects on the agreement from multiple perspectives, including legislative, the private sector, SMEs, and NGOs working to halt climate change. Attendees will also learn the role their business can play in tackling climate change and how BEPI can support this important work.
