Assurance webinar: How to use the SFC Emissions Report template

  • 11 March 2024
  • 13:00-14:00 CET

You are invited to attend the 1-hour ‘How to use the SFC Emissions Report template’ learning session on March 11 from 13:00-14:00 CET. Many logistics sustainability professionals dedicate the first quarter of the year to reporting their GHG emissions. Some of you may be using the new ISO 14083 standard for the first time. We have developed an Emissions Report template to help you ensure nothing is left out.  

The webinar will provide an opportunity for organizations to understand how to use it, with inputs from a peer user (Maren Wolff, from DB Schenker), and a senior GHG verifier  (Lucy Candlin, from Planet & Prosperity). Attendees will also be able to ask questions to both, in a 20 min Q&A slot. 

This webinar is open to all SFC community members. You can sign up here
