2012-03-29 Measuring and Reporting Scope 3 Emissions: Employee Commuting & Business Travel

Scope 3 (value chain) emissions have been referred to as “the buried treasure” of corporate GHG management, given they are often associated with the biggest reduction opportunities. Scope 3 emissions include emissions from employee business travel, employees commuting to and from work, downstream emissions from waste disposal, and upstream emissions from the transportation of purchased materials or goods.
