BSR Spring Forum: A Series of Events on Climate

This spring, BSR will gather the business community ahead of the COP21 climate talks to drive leadership on climate with a series of spring events throughout Europe.

BSR will share its business and climate strategy, Business in a Climate-Constrained World, and how climate “wedges” can be applied to different industries and sectors and—when combined—how they can contribute to a 2°C pathway, which is generally considered the upper limit of global temperature rise to avoid catastrophic climate impacts.

How to Build Climate-Resilient Supply Chains

As part of the event series, BSR will hold a one-day event dedicated to climate and supply chains on May 28 in London.

Typically, more than 50 percent of an average corporation’s carbon emissions are from the supply chain. As a result, global supply chains are one of the most critical opportunities for companies to reduce their climate impacts and to gain business benefits from building resilience.

At this event, BSR will launch its report on climate-resilient supply chains, which will include a step-by-step framework for managing this important risk area, case studies from BSR member companies and partners, and best practices for companies in the consumer products, information and communications technology, retail, and food, beverage, and agriculture sectors.
