Reducing emissions in a company’s supply chain presents a challenge because emissions occur outside your direct control. Out of sight can seem out of mind. But ignoring the environmental impacts of actions such as business travel, landfill waste, and emissions from transporting bought and sold goods can have a real impact on your hard-fought sustainability achievements.
Reporting scope 1 and 2 emissions are mandatory for many organizations worldwide, and these emissions are relatively easy to measure and control. Reporting scope 3 emissions is voluntary and can be more challenging, as it involves sources of emissions external to an organization within the supply chain.
However, in most cases, scope 3 emissions represent the greatest GHG impact, and companies must measure and improve them to reach our shared climate targets.
