Scope 3 emissions represent scope 1 and 2 emissions of all of the other participants in a supply chain. Whilst there remains a growing amount of activity in developing solutions for combining scopes 1 and 2 to create Scope 3 emissions data maps, we are far from seeing these being broadly adopted. Many of these difficulties can be traced back to the diverse methodologies used in the collection and analysis of data and the lack of interoperability.
For this challenge, the focus is on upstream and downstream transportation and distribution using data from across the value chain from the source of energy through to the end user. The work will be aligned to the GHG protocol and work within the WBCSD’s pathfinder framework and network.
In this challenge we want to work with technology innovators with a viable mechanism that facilitates companies to collect scope 1 and 2 emissions. The proof of value will seek to enable suppliers/buyers to access that data in a permissioned form and to be able to more quickly map out their scope 3 emissions for the selected products.
