Scope 3 emissions – those in the upstream and downstream value chains – can account for as much as 95% of a business’s overall emissions footprint. This puts procurement at the heart of many organisation's sustainability efforts.

As environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues assume ever-more importance, CPOs and their functions can play a critical role in enabling businesses to meet the demands of the public, shareholders and regulators.
