International Trade & Prosperity Week – Delivering Sustainable Global Value Chains

London & online

7-9 November 2023

Registrations are now open for International Trade and Prosperity Week (ITPW) – Delivering Sustainable Global Value Chains, taking place on 7 – 9 November 2023.

Day 1 – In-person at Diageo, 16 Great Marlborough Street, London, W1F 7HS
Days 2 & 3 – Virtual only

This three day conference focuses on scope 3 emissions (all indirect emissions that occur in the value chain of the reporting company, including both upstream and downstream emissions) and brings together prominent global thought leaders from business, government and industry institutions to look at how they can help advance an organisations decarbonisation and sustainability journey.

By focusing on practical global case studies and initiatives, the approach involves sharing international best practice with the aim of providing a set of practical policy takeaways. These takeaways will be promoted widely and fed into policy forums at the UN, WTO, and G20.
