Stakeholders: Civil society United Kingdom/Cabinet Office: The Group took part in the p Net Zero Carbon round table organised by the Cabinet Office in London. Key points covered include the impact of the Covid crisis on emissions (working from home, reduction in commuting, supply chain resilience).
TARGETS: Ensure the entire value chain (employees, clients, suppliers, p partners, etc.) is involved in and contributes to the continuous improvement process. Raise awareness among our stakeholders and contribute to p working groups involving opinion leaders. Develop employee engagement across the Group. p RESULTS: The relevant information is set out in Section 4.3.4, “Reducing GHG emissions resulting from our operations”, of this chapter (pages 126 to 128).
