2022 Reducing Scope 3 Emissions - Webinar Series : Global Compact Network UK

March - July 2022

To support companies to reduce carbon emissions across their value chain, the UN Global Compact Network UK hosted a series of topical webinars exploring how companies can tackle Scope 3 emissions categories as defined by the GHG Protocol. Participants heard from climate specialists and business leaders as they shared best practices for identifying, measuring, and reducing their Scope 3 emissions.


The Greenhouse Gas Protocol Corporate Standard classifies a company’s GHG emissions into three ‘scopes’:


  • Scope 1 emissions: direct emissions from owned or controlled sources.
  • Scope 2 emissions: indirect emissions from the generation of purchased energy.
  • Scope 3 emissions: all indirect emissions (not included in Scope 2) that occur in the value chain of the reporting company, including both upstream and downstream emissions.

As Scope 3 emissions usually account for more than 70 percent of a business’ carbon footprint, it is crucial that companies tackle Scope 3 emissions to meet the aims of the Paris Agreement and limit global warming to 1.5°C.


There are numerous benefits associated with measuring and reducing Scope 3 emissions. By measuring Scope 3 emissions, organisations can:

  • assess where the emission hotspots are in their value chain;
  • identify resource and energy risks in their supply chain;
  • identify which suppliers are leaders and which are laggards in terms of their sustainability performance;
  • identify energy efficiency and cost reduction opportunities in their value chain;
  • engage suppliers and assist them to implement sustainability initiatives;
  • improve the energy efficiency of their products; and
  • positively engage with employees to reduce emissions from business travel and employee commuting.

While companies are now recognising the importance of addressing their Scope 3 emissions, action in this area must be scaled up to reach true net zero by 2050.
