Scope-3 Emissions Calculations

Scope 3 Calculations Course explores the intricacies of assessing and accounting for Scope 3 emissions in corporate sustainability reporting. Scope 3 emissions, which encompass indirect emissions along the entire value chain, including those from suppliers, customers, and transportation, play a crucial role in understanding a company’s full carbon footprint and its environmental impact. In this course, participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of Scope 3 emissions, including different categories and calculation methodologies. We will delve into supply chain analysis, transportation emissions, and product life.
