The past years have been highly challenging for global supply chains, and 2022 is likely to be continuously so. As China and Europe have experienced energy-crises recently, and energy is very closely linked to carbon reduction, it is key for companies to understand how to mitigate energy-related risk and cost in their supply chains and own operations.
We have invited Johan Annell, Partner at Asia Perspective to speak together with Mikael Jakobsson, CEO of NXITY to share their perspectives and experiences on questions including:
What are the overall trends impacting companies sourcing or producing in Asia?
How is China working with implementation towards Carbon peak and Carbon neutrality?
How will the upcoming European demands on carbon-transparency and carbon border tax impact companies with supply chain in China?
What new opportunities are there to compete with energy efficient solutions?
What are companies doing already now to take the right supply chain decisions and reduce emissions in their operations in China?
What are the key technical and implementation success factors to reduce energy usage in China?
What should companies focus on in 2022 to be ready for higher energy prices, more transparency and more ambitious carbon reduction targets?
