To achieve Net Zero emissions, all organisations must not only measure and reduce the carbon associated with their direct activities and energy use, but also those emissions from indirect activity. These Scope 3 emissions, including what we buy, are extremely difficult to accurately understand, and therefore manage.
The Scope 3 Community of Practice is a learning network of organisations across the South West of the UK, including councils, businesses and public sector organisations, who are committed to reducing their indirect emissions. The group is aiming to find consistency in its approach to carbon accounting, and creating outputs that can be shared by all.
January’s meeting will have an update on the project work, and then a key focus on how to build a focus on carbon into qualitative discussions around procurement and finance.
