When it comes to corporate climate action, employees and customers constantly ask the same question: What’s next? Offsets alone are not the answer. Employees and customers feel increasingly skeptical about carbon credits. Many of the solutions they expect businesses to support fall beyond the reach of even the best offsets. Not-for-profit organisations deliver the systemic, hard-to-measure climate solutions that offsetting alone cannot address. In doing so, they deliver the regenerative solutions that employees and customers expect. Join the Global Returns Project to learn about supporting these powerful organisations as a complement or alternative to carbon offsetting. Join us to learn about the future of corporate climate leadership.

Founder of nZero – Josh Weber – talks with DIN about how business operators can categorise their emissions across the entire value chain, helping to make identifying emissions savings a much easier task. In this session we also find out about some of the common misconceptions around categorising emissions, tracking the source of the energy that facilities consume, and how operators can tackle the challenge of Scope 3 in a meaningful way.

With the focus on reducing and eliminating CO2 emissions shifting toward more complex value-chain emissions and the concept of Scope 3, data centre operators are increasingly turning to carbon offsets to mitigate emissions which are hard to abate. HP Kildal, CEO at Becour, discusses with DIN how digital infrastructure is becoming increasingly reliant on carbon offsets to hit their net-zero targets, the challenges around standardisation and transparency, and how Energy Attribute Certificates could be the solution to the problem.
