What is Scope 1, 2, 3 Emissions?

Scope 1 emissions are direct greenhouse gas emissions from sources owned or controlled by an organization. Scope 2 emissions are indirect emissions from the consumption of purchased electricity, steam, heat, and cooling. Scope 3 emissions are all other indirect emissions that occur in the value chain of the reporting company, including both upstream and downstream activities. Measuring and managing all three scopes of emissions is essential for comprehensive carbon management. It helps organizations to understand their total environmental impact and identify reduction opportunities.
