Conscious consumers and legal requirements such as ESG reporting are increasingly calling on companies to decarbonize the entire value chain. However, many businesses have so far only monitored their SCOPE-1 and SCOPE-2 emissions: direct CO2 emissions within their own company and indirect emissions from energy suppliers. Meanwhile, the SCOPE-3 emissions of the supply chain are still insufficiently recorded. We present a number of examples to show where companies can start and what measures they can take.
Sustainability is not just a trend, but one of the major tasks of today. This is why companies are striving to improve their environmental balance sheets and are actively working towards reducing their harmful emissions. A first or additional step in this respect is the offsetting of carbon emissions. But which measures actually serve their purpose? We have the answer.
