Viresco “How To”: Reducing Scope 3 Emissions and Building Supply Chain Collaboration

June 19, 2024

However, there are some important things to consider!

🌍 Scope 3 emissions are not directly under the control of companies, so collaboration with partner organizations is crucial. This also happens to be the most difficult part!

🀝 Building trust and open sharing of information and data between your organization and your supply chain partners can be very time, resource, and labor-intensive. This work is not for the faint of heart!

πŸ† That being said, this work is also incredibly worthwhile, as Scope 3 emissions make up the bulk of all companies’ emissions and mitigating your Scope 3 impact can be win-win for everyone!

πŸ’Ό Your supply chain partners can co-claim climate impacts, which can help them reach their own ESG goals. This co-benefit can facilitate co-investments, which can strengthen your emission reduction projects.

🎯 As part of this collaboration, it is also advised that you engage in joint target setting with your partner organizations to clarify and separate (as much as possible) which actions each party is responsible for.

⚠️ Finally, all of these actions require safeguards and adherence to strict guidelines to avoid causing unintentional harm or losses elsewhere as a result of your work.
