Reducing Carbon Emissions: How To Conduct Scope 3 GHG Reporting

by Matt Thorn

on November 23, 2021

Executive Summary

 

Greenhouse Gas (GHG) reporting provides the data you need to identify and reduce carbon emissions – a crucial step in limiting climate change. The emissions directly released by business operations can have a large impact, but are still likely small compared to that of the business’ supply chain. Scope 3 GHG reporting includes supply chain emissions data to allow companies to identify and reduce carbon ‘hot spots.’

 

One of the challenges businesses face when undertaking Scope 3 GHG reporting is the scale of the task. It is laborious and difficult to obtain data from even the first tier in a supply chain. Furthermore, knowing which emissions to report, what part of the product life cycle to include, and where to gather data from is complicated.

 

Here at Source Intelligence, we understand these challenges. In this white paper, we will cover the purpose of Scope 3 GHG reporting, the risks associated with not reporting Scope 3 GHG emissions, how to create a reporting strategy, and provide guidance on how to make an impact that will reduce global carbon emissions and even clean up inefficiencies in your supply chain.

 

In this white paper, we go into detail on the following topics:

  • The History & Purpose Of Greenhouse Gas Reporting
  • Creating A Reporting Strategy
  • How To Make An Impact With Report Findings
  • Automated VS. Manual Reporting
  • And More!
