Scope 3 and supply chain

Robust and credible Scope 3 emission calculations as part of a complete carbon footprint is increasingly the norm. Scope 3 captures the emissions associated with your company’s value chain from waste management to investment emissions looking both upstream and downstream and are not under the direct control of the company itself.

We help our clients align their carbon accounting and calculations to bestpractice standards and guidance, such as SBTi, Greenhouse Gas Protocol and meeting the disclosure requirements of CDP, TCFD and SECR.

Expanding your emissions reporting from what relates to direct operations to your supply chain enables companies to better engage suppliers, identify efficiencies and saving opportunities.

Scope 3 emissions contributes to between 70-90% of a company’s overall emissions and therefore may be a daunting prospect with many wondering where to start.Transitioning to net-zero has never been more urgent. Quantifying emissions through a carbon footprint is the key first step in this transition.

Suppliers reported financial impacts of US$1.26 trillion from environmental risks in the next 5 years and supply chain emissions are 11.4x higher than operational emissions for the average company. CDP Global Supply Chain Report, 2020¬

At Simply Sustainable we acknowledge that all companies are at a different stage in their journey, from those who are looking to move from annual reporting to quarterly reporting.

Our approach to Scope 3 emissions reporting remains consistent:

  • Meeting companies where they are:
    Emissions reporting, particularly when it comes to Scope 3 is an ongoing process, we will work with you to identify recommendations to future proof and align processes to your business.
  • Aligned to science:
    Guidance documents and standards are constantly updating, we are here to assimilate and communicate the key requirements of these documents in a way that is simple to understand.
  • Engaging and integrating knowledge:
    Bringing your employees on the journey is vital to enact change through integrating carbon and emissions knowledge into every role. Through ongoing support around data collection through workshops, bespoke guidance documents and training sessions.
