What is Scope 3?
While Scope 1 covers all emissions directly produced by combustion itself in a company’s plants, Scope 2 emissions relate to purchased energy (e.g. electricity, district heating). Scope 3, in turn, includes emissions from third-party services and purchased inputs. There are 15 Scope 3 categories that are ranging from Purchased Goods and Services, over Business Travel, to Employee Commuting.
With its adaptability to various systems and subsystems, the cii Scope 3 Management Module allows you to keep track over your companies Scope 3 emissions.
Why you should measure Scope 3 emissions?
Considerable quantities of greenhouse gas emissions can be reduced within the Scope 3 range, often accompanied by considerable cost savings. Numerous companies have already implemented optimisation measures with their logistics service providers, thus reducing both emissions and costs. Such experience must be extended to upstream production processes and the procurement of goods. A prerequisite for targeted savings measures is the knowledge about the main hot spots along the supply chain.
