Value Chain Emissions
Expectations for companies to measure and report on their Scope 3 emissions are increasing. Reporting Scope 3 emissions allows you to engage with your supply chain and obtain information on carbon emissions and reductions, energy, water and waste efficiency.
At EcoAct we are driven by a desire to make a difference. To help businesses to implement change in response to climate and environmental challenges, whilst also driving commercial performance.

Expectations for companies to measure and report on their Scope 3 emissions are increasing from investors, legislation, peers and customers.
Many major international corporates are using Scope 3 reporting as a means of engaging with their supply chain, asking them to provide sustainability information including carbon emissions and reductions as well as energy, water and waste efficiency
Embedding climate and sustainability related thinking into strategic decisions is an opportunity for your organisation to innovate, increase investments in green technology, and accelerate emission reductions.Read more for Climate Strategy
Any climate strategy starts by calculating a carbon footprint to understand your organisation’s climate impact and to focus your emissions reduction initiatives.Read more for Carbon Footprinting
We can help you to understand what Scope 3 emissions are and how to tackle them.
Scope 3 emissions are those which primarily come from a company’s value chain (upstream and downstream) and are not under the direct control of the reporting company itself. Examples of Scope 3 emissions include business travel, employee commuting or emissions arising from the use of sold products. We can help you to identify and calculate the material emissions sources for your company.
Scope 3 mapping and emissions reporting is an opportunity to better understand and start taking steps to address the environmental impacts of your supply chain and maintain your competitive advantage.
EcoAct has extensive experience helping companies to better understand and overcome the challenges to calculate their full value chain emissions impact
We can help you develop effective strategies for managing and reducing your Scope 3 emissions, minimising future risks and using the data to inform sustainable decisions about your company’s activities and products.
Working with EcoAct has been hugely beneficial. Their experts have helped us understand our Scope 3 emissions, how to improve our data and how to start reducing these emissions. It has been invaluable to have a team of people we can ask for advice and get a quick response.Read the full case study
This Factsheet addresses arguably the most challenging and often the largest set of emissions for a business to tackle. It covers:
Scope 3 emisions, also known as “value chain” emissions, are indirect greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions both upstream and downstream of an organisation’s main operations.
For most organisations, Scope 3 emissions make up the largest part of their carbon footprint which makes them the most important to tackle. Measuring your Scope 3 emissions provides an opportunity to better understand and start taking steps to address the environmental impacts of your supply chain.
To get started with your Scope 3 emissions, you need to map organisational activities across the 15 Scope 3 categories to understand which categories are relevant to your organisation. You can then work to measure your Scope 3 footprint.
