Scope 3 Supply Chain Solutions

Scope 3 emissions are probably the most important and most difficult for companies to develop on their Net Zero journey.

They cover many things, including the carbon footprints of your supply chain and can be up 97% of your company’s overall carbon footprint.

There are 3 Scopes created by the GHG Protocol for companies to reduce their carbon footprint and guide them on the road to Net Zero.

Scope 1 covers the Green House Gas (GHG) emissions that a company makes directly — for example while running its boilers and vehicles.

Scope 2 covers emissions that a company  makes indirectly – like when the electricity or energy it buys for heating and cooling buildings, is being produced on its behalf.

Scope 3 is more complicated as it covers all the emissions associated, not with the company itself, but that the organisation is indirectly responsible for, up and down its value chain. For example, from buying products from its suppliers, and from its products when customers use them. Emissions-wise, Scope 3 is nearly always the big one.

What are Scope 3 emissions?

Scope 3 emissions are the result of activities from assets not owned or controlled by the reporting organisation, but that the organisation indirectly impacts in its value chain.

Scope 3 emissions are also referred to as value/supply chain emissions and often represent the majority of an organisation’s total GHG emissions.

Up to

97%

of a company’s carbon emissions could be under Scope 3.

Purchased Goods & Services
