The London SPE Net Zero Gaia committee is excited to invite you to this coffee hour chat where we will discuss ‘Scope 3 Emissions and Offsetting’.

For the first time in this engaging webinar series, we’re shifting the spotlight onto a critical topic that’s often overlooked – Scope 3 emissions and the power of effective offsetting. In a world where environmental responsibility is seen as a necessity, gaining a deep understanding of Scope 3 emissions and the pivotal role of offsetting has never been more vital. Join us over lunch as we delve into the territory of indirect emissions, and dig down into the complex role of offsetting in our journey to net zero. Don’t miss out – your lunch break could be the moment you see Scope 3 emissions and offsetting in a new light.

Our speakers include Paul Chernik, ERC Evolution General Manager. Paul launched ERC Evolution as an internal start-up within the ERCE Group in 2021.
