Scope 3 emissions

Greenhouse gas emissions that occur as a result of activities indirectly related to an organization. These are considered indirect emissions that happen throughout the organization’s value chain and encompass a wide range of activities. A few examples of this would be supply chain emissions, transportation and distribution, product use, and waste disposal. Scope 3 emissions tend to make up a significant portion of an organization’s total carbon footprint. By accounting and addressing these indirect emissions, organizations can gain a more comprehensive understanding of their environmental impact.
