MHI Offering Sustainability Training to Members

As part of our ongoing commitment to supply chain sustainability, MHI has partnered with Supplier LOCT (Supplier Leadership on Climate Transition) to offer MHI members educational opportunities that align with current global sustainability protocols, standards, and pledges. 

Supplier LOCT is an online climate school managed by global consultancy Guidehouse. Their training includes the following modules:

  1. Scope 1 & 2 Footprinting. Measuring direct GHG emissions from owned or controlled sources. Examples: electricity, steam, heat, cooling; transportation fleet.
  2. Scope 3 Footprinting. Determine supply chain GHG emissions that occur from sources not owned or controlled by the company.
  3. Target Setting. Commit to or set a science-based target (SBT) to reduce GHG emissions with the Scienced-Based Target initiative (SBTi).
  4. Abatement. Identify GHG emissions reductions opportunities and develop a plan, “roadmap”, for implementation.
  5. Disclosure. Improve the accuracy of Scope 3 emissions by allocating supplier companies’ activities or emissions data to a specific product and reporting to the CDP (formerly Carbon Disclosure Project) and other key stakeholders.
  6. Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy. Identify the correct projects to implement and provide access to funding to support and accelerate efforts. The Science Based Target initiative has identified 80% renewable electricity procurement by 2025 and 100% by 2030 in alignment with the recommendations of RE100.

MHI member companies can have up to five participants for these courses. The deadline for enrollment in the Fall 2024 semester is September 6. Contact Carol Miller for enrollment information.
