When it comes to measuring a company’s greenhouse gas emissions, there are several considerations to be made. While most companies are familiar with Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions, Scope 3 emissions are often overlooked because they are difficult to attain. Scope 3 emissions are indirect emissions that occur from activities outside an organization’s boundaries, such as emissions that went into the production of goods or services purchased by the organization, its employees’ commuting, or its waste disposal. These emissions can have a significant impact on a company’s carbon footprint. Measurabl’s latest feature, Scope 3 Tenant Emissions View, is a game-changer for companies looking to gain a more accurate picture of their emissions profile.
Why are Scope 3 Emissions important?
Scope 3 emissions are becoming increasingly important as companies work to reduce their carbon footprint and meet sustainability goals. According to the Carbon Trust, Scope 3 emissions are often responsible for the majority of emissions in a company’s value chain and can account for up to 80% of the carbon impact of products and services. In real estate, the majority of Scope 3 emissions come from your tenants’ activities and energy consumption. Therefore, companies that ignore or underestimate Scope 3 emissions risk missing out on opportunities to reduce their environmental impact and cut substantial costs.
