Our Scope 3 Reporting Solution

Whether you’re a large business or an SME, you will need to report on Scope 3 emissions eventually.

The urgency to reduce carbon emissions is becoming increasingly evident, with the EU taking the lead in making emission reporting mandatory, setting a precedent for all other nations to soon follow suit.

So, what are they and how do you report on them?

Scope 3 emissions are the indirect impact of your supply chain, transportation, and other external activities. By getting insights into these aspects, you get a full view of your environmental influence.

Unlike traditional carbon reporting tools that merely scratch the surface, our Scope 3 reporting goes beyond mere numerical data by actively assisting you in identifying and addressing carbon hotspots within your supply chain.

Scope 3 reporting solution

Setting you a roadmap for compliance

Measuring your carbon to manage your future. 

Measuring your CO2 emissions is more than just complying with regulations, it is the start of setting achievable and sustainable goals for your business. 

The Global Logistics Emissions Council (GLEC) pioneered the development of the GLEC framework which is a method to harmonise the calculation and reporting of GHG emissions in logistics across multimodal supply chains. This framework is now internationally recognised and is of ISO-14083 standard, which ensures global compliance.

This directive positions companies as conscientious leaders, encouraging dedication to reducing their complete operational carbon footprint and contributing to a more sustainable future.

Reporting is the first step in understanding the emissions our customers are producing. The real value we can bring is helping customers to see opportunities in their supply chain to be more efficient, reduce emissions and create value in their business.

The EU is leading the way

With the European Union (EU) at the forefront, the member nations created the EU’s Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), which made it mandatory to report on scope 3 emissions, influencing similar actions globally.

The UK, set to announce its Sustainable Development Reporting (SDR) by 2024, initially applies this directive to large businesses, underscoring the increasing reliance on accurate emissions reporting, particularly for those smaller businesses in supply chains with the larger businesses.

Amidst these changes, our close collaboration with organisations like the Smart Freight Centre and ReverseMI ensures we stay ahead of the evolving landscape, allowing you to address these complexities with ease.
