Scope 3 Emissions

Scope 3 emissions are a category of indirect greenhouse gas emissions that result from activities associated with an organization but occur from sources beyond its direct control. These emissions encompass a wide range of sources, including those associated with the supply chain, both upstream and downstream processes, business travel, employee commuting, waste generation, the use of sold products and leased assets.

Managing and reducing Scope 3 emissions is crucial for organizations seeking to comprehensively address their environmental impact and contribute to sustainability goals. While challenging due to their indirect nature and external stakeholders’ involvement, many companies are increasingly recognizing the importance of measuring, reporting and mitigating Scope 3 emissions as part of their broader sustainability and climate action strategies. This approach allows for a more comprehensive and holistic assessment of an organization’s carbon footprint and its contribution to climate change mitigation efforts.
