Frequently asked questions

What are Scope 3 GHG emissions?

Scope 3 GHG emissions refer to the indirect greenhouse gas emissions associated with an organisation’s activities that occur outside its own boundaries. These emissions result from the entire value chain, including suppliers, customers, transportation, waste, and more.

Why is measuring Scope 3 emissions important?

Measuring Scope 3 emissions is crucial for a comprehensive understanding of an organisation’s environmental impact. These emissions often account for the majority of a company’s carbon footprint, and addressing them is essential for effective climate change mitigation and sustainability efforts.

What are the different categories of Scope 3 emissions?

Scope 3 emissions are categorised into 15 different categories as defined by the Greenhouse Gas Protocol. Some common categories include purchased goods and services, transportation and distribution, business travel, employee commuting, and waste generated.

What challenges may companies face when measuring Scope 3 emissions?

Measuring Scope 3 emissions can be complex and challenging due to data availability, reliability, and the need for cooperation from suppliers and other stakeholders. Additionally, varying calculation methodologies and regional emission factors can introduce complexities.

Are Scope 3 emissions included in carbon footprint reporting?

Yes, Scope 3 emissions are typically included in an organisation’s carbon footprint reporting to provide a comprehensive overview of its total greenhouse gas emissions impact.
