In addition to our Business Certification product, which mostly measures Scopes 1 & 2, a Scope 3 Footprint Calculation offers a detailed view of an organisation’s emissions for their entire value chain
Calculating Scope 3 emissions is no longer seen as something only leading companies do, it is now a mainstream requirement of channel partners and investors across many sectors, and often accounts for a significant proportion of an organisation’s total footprint.
Up to 90% of an organisation’s carbon emission can sit in scope 3. It is therefore imperative to measure scope 3 in its entirety in order to get an accurate understanding of how and where to start reducing.
