GLRPPR Sector Resource: Greenhouse Gas Corporate Value Chain (Scope 3) Accounting and Reporting Standard

Title:
Greenhouse Gas Corporate Value Chain (Scope 3) Accounting and Reporting Standard

Abstract:
The Corporate Value Chain (Scope 3) Standard allows companies to assess their entire value chain emissions impact and identify the most effective ways to reduce emissions. Often, the majority of total corporate emissions come from scope 3 sources, which means many companies have been missing out on significant opportunities for improvement. Users of the new standard can now account for emissions from 15 categories of scope 3 activities, both upstream and downstream of their operations. The scope 3 framework also supports strategies to partner with suppliers and customers to address climate impacts throughout the value chain.
