When you know your company’s carbon footprint, you know how relevant your own and your value chain (scope 3) emissions are, so you can make data-driven decisions and improve where it is needed the most.
Depending on industry, the value chain emissions can comprise of up to 80% of your company’s overall environmental impact and play an important role in a robust science-based decarbonization strategy toward net zero. Some of the 15 scope 3 categories (e.g., business travel and employee commuting), are easier to quantify than others (e.g., use of sold products, purchased goods and services), and not all 15 categories are relevant for every company.
If the scope 3 emissions are not quantified in the right way based on reliable industry-based data or are not considered at all, it could result in financial risks, high capital costs, reputational damage due to green-washing or even loss of your “license to operate.”
