The Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG Protocol) has developed a comprehensive and standardized framework which can be applied by organizations when measuring and managing emissions.
Briefly, Scope 1 and 2 emissions are usually easier to track as they directly come from operations or are the energy used by an organization. Scope 3 is much more complex as it involves all indirect emissions that occur in the value chain. To illustrate it we’ve taken the example of a laptop to show some of the components that drive Scope 3 emissions and thus how you might think beyond face value when tackling Scope 3 emissions.
