Course Description


The Understanding Scope 3 Emissions training course provided by Glomacs introduces a comprehensive understanding for scope 3 emissions. Scope 3 emissions are indirect greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that occur in a company's value chain, including both upstream and downstream activities. These emissions are a result of the company's business activities but occur outside of its operational control. Scope 3 emissions can include emissions from suppliers, transportation, use of products by customers, and disposal of products at the end of their useful life.

Scope 3 emissions are often the largest source of emissions for many companies and can be challenging to measure and manage due to their complexity and the involvement of external stakeholders. However, companies are increasingly recognizing the importance of addressing their Scope 3 emissions as part of their climate change mitigation strategies, as they represent a significant opportunity to reduce their overall carbon footprint and contribute to a more sustainable future.
