Greenhouse gas emissions are categorised into three groups or ‘scopes’ by the most widely-used international accounting tool, the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol
The Clean Earth Collective can help you measure your companies carbon footprint and guide you through the carbon audit process.
Scope 1 and 2 cover direct emissions sources (e.g., fuel used in company vehicles and purchased electricity), Scope 3 emissions cover all indirect emissions due to the activities of an organisation. These include emissions from both suppliers and consumers.
Why should an organisation measure its Scope 3 emissions? There are a number of benefits associated with measuring scope 3 emissions. For many businesses, the majority of their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and cost reduction opportunities lie outside their own operations.
By measuring Scope 3 emissions, organisations can:
- Assess where the emission hotspots are in their supply chain.
- Identify resource and energy risks in their supply chain.
- Identify which suppliers are leaders and which are laggards in terms of their sustainability performance.
- Identify energy efficiency and cost reduction opportunities in their supply chain.
- Engage suppliers and assist them to implement sustainability initiatives.
- Improve the energy efficiency of their products.
- Positively engage with employees to reduce emissions from business travel and employee commuting.
- Demonstrate leadership.
