Scope 3 GHG emissions are a broad category of emissions that includes all other indirect emissions that are not onsite combustion (Scope 1) or purchased electricity (Scope 2). This can include employee commutes, waste, air travel, and life cycle emissions of purchased goods. Reporting Scope 3 emissions is optional, but these emissions can be a large percentage of your footprint. Understanding your Scope 3 emissions is a crucial step towards corporate stewardship. Including Scope 3 GHG emissions in your inventory means that you are fully disclosing your climate impacts, even though such reporting is not required in existing climate change regulations. Companies are increasingly looking to reduce emissions in their full supply chain because they are aware that their climate impacts extend well beyond operations. Scope 3 emissions can be a large percentage, or even a majority, of your total footprint, so understanding your Scope 3 emissions is a crucial step towards corporate stewardship. Our Scope-3-Shift greenhouse gas consulting service, along with our supply chain consulting services will help you understand, calculate, and take steps to reduce your Scope 3 emissions and green your supply chain. It is an important optional component of our carbon reduction strategy services. You can download the full InfoPak on our Scope 3 emission services here.
