Download full summary in English here

The WEC Executive Roundtable “Decarbonizing Value Chains: Transportation” in collaboration with Trane Technologies, Chemours and Toyota was the second of four events focusing on decarbonizing scope 3 emissions in major industry sectors.

Eliminating greenhouse gas emissions in a company’s supply chain and among its customers—so-called Scope 3 emissions—is the biggest challenge in decarbonizing most businesses. Effective solutions are needed that companies can implement to decarbonize their value chains. Globally, transportation accounts for some 16 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions. Fortunately, technological solutions for passenger vehicles are evolving quickly and innovation in the heavy transport and aviation industries is underway. Still unclear, however, is the overall strategic roadmap for how the transportation sector can reach net-zero emissions by 2050.

In this Roundtable, senior business leaders and technical experts discussed practical solutions to eliminate emissions from transportation in corporate value chains.

The event was held under the Chatham House Rule and brought together 35 senior sustainability and logistic experts from ten countries, of which 83% came from global companies, and 17% from Think Tanks/NGOs.
