Rebecca Howard

Coventry Building Society are committed to becoming net zero by 2040, and decarbonising the supply chain by 2030 is a major milestone on that journey. Rebecca Howard will discuss how the Society identified suppliers with highest carbon emissions and engaged with key suppliers to understand their carbon targets. Using the GHG protocol, the Society has modelled the total supply base to provide a prioritised approach to carbon reduction. Rebecca will talk about how decarbonisation fits into the wider sustainable procurement journey that the Procurement & SRM team has undertaken. This includes working with suppliers to provide pre-employment skills for local school children and expanding use of local and diverse suppliers.
