What is carbon tracking?
Carbon emissions tracking is the process of measuring, monitoring, and recording greenhouse gases (GHGs), including carbon dioxide (CO2) along supply chains.
What are Scope 3 emissions?
There are three emissions categories, including Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 emissions, with the latter accounting for 80-90% of your carbon emissions.
Scope 1 emissions are direct emissions that come from sources that are owned or controlled by your organization.
Scope 2 emissions are indirect emissions associated with energy consumption; ie. purchased electricity, heat, or steam.
Scope 3 emissions are all other indirect emissions that occur as a consequence of the activities of the organization, but from sources not owned or controlled by the organization, aka other actors in your supply chain.
How to reduce Scope 3 emissions?
Map your supply chains to discover key actors.
Work with your suppliers to calculate their carbon emissions.
Know where you need to reduce, inset or offset emissions.
