BMG LIVE: Could procurement do more to track Scope 3?

Taking to the Main Stage, Sheldon Mydat & Stephany Lapierre discuss Scope 3 emissions in supply chain & procurement with Scott Birch, CCO at BMG LIVE event

April 2022, Procurement Magazine, Supply Chain Digital and Bizclik Media Group returned to the Tobacco Dock (London) to host our second Procurement & Supply Chain LIVE. 

Dubbed ‘The Risk & Resilience Conference’ the two-day hybrid event was held on the 27th and 28th of April, featuring keynotes, roundtables, Q&As, and 1-2-1s from inspirational and knowledgeable leaders in the procurement and supply chain space.

Could procurement and supply chains do more to track Scope 3 emissions?

Taking to the Main Stage Sheldon Mydat, Founder and CEO of Suppeco and Stephany Lapierre, Founder and CEO of Tealbook took part in a panel discussion at Procurement & Supply Chain LIVE alongside Scott Birch, Chief Content Officer at BizClik Media Group (BMG).

During the discussion, the three deep-dived into the monitoring of Scope 3 emissions, its complexities, the benefits of technology, and the importance of supplier visibility. 

“I typically say that we already have a very difficult - maybe even impossible - time collecting data from Tier 1 suppliers and categorising spend at the invoice level. And so I think the biggest challenge is how do we get the baseline? How do we drive accountability among all of the other requirements that procurement and supply chain is responsible for? So I think the challenge will be how do organisations execute and drive accountability and ownership in a way that is quantifiable,” commented Lapierre.

Mydat adds: “Supplier relationships are essential. You’ve got to break down barriers, it's down to those Tier 1 suppliers in collaboration with customers to drive those behaviours and bring smaller companies on the journey to drive more business, open up new opportunities, and develop new innovation and shared research and development (R&D).”
