Why we need your help
Scope 3 emissions include those that come from our supply chain, they contribute to our overall carbon footprint. We're on a mission to reduce this, but we need to work with our entire value chain to gather high quality data in order to do so.
A world of averages.
Historically, industry averages have been used for carbon accounting, resulting in low-quality data that can’t be used to accurately measure emission reduction. The world deserves better, which is why we’re working hard with our entire value chain to build primary data into our accounting.
The future relies on actuals.
We want to track and reduce our carbon emissions, so we need to understand the actual carbon emissions associated with our valued suppliers. This is new for many of us, so let's start off on the right foot, leading with education and support to improve the quality of our data.
How you can get started
Gathering momentum behind any big change can take time. If you've already started carbon accounting, we'd love to understand your process more. If audit ready carbon accounting across scope 1, 2 and 3 is new, simply start with up-skilling and setting a baseline. This puts us both in a better position, win win.
Start carbon accounting
Make carbon accounting an extension of your financial accounting and reporting, committing to an auditable standard.
Net zero targets
Set emission reduction targets to work towards, understand what's required to get there and set the tone for your own future.
Be open to working together with stakeholders to reduce emissions over time. There's power in numbers and we're all ears.
