The climate crisis, combined with political, social and economic pressure, has forced companies to disclose their product and corporate carbon footprints and to aim for drastic emissions reduction targets in line with the latest environmental science as defined in the U.N.’s Paris Agreement (to limit the global temperature increase to 1.5°C (2.7°F) by mid-century).

Tackle the Scope 3 Challenge and Get Your Value Chain Emissions Under Control

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. But since these emissions are not under your company’s direct control, they are difficult to assess.

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.”
