Want to know some more about Scope 3 Emissions?
Scope 3 encompasses emissions that are not produced by the company itself and are not the result of activities from assets owned or controlled by them, but by those that it’s indirectly responsible for up and down its value chain. An example of this is when we buy, use and dispose of products from suppliers. Scope 3 emissions include all sources not within the scope 1 and 2 boundaries.
For many businesses, scope 3 emissions account for by far the highest proportion of total emissions. Unfortunately, these are also usually the hardest to reduce. Some of the actions a company can take to reduce these is to work with existing suppliers and their customers on solutions to reduce their emissions.
Thats where we come in! Carbonfit can help you work through your supply chain and calculate these emissions easily! Through a multi-step process, you can work closely with our team to get a grip on your scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions!
