Scope 3 insights from Climate Leaders meeting
2nd March 2021
The Partnership’s newly formed Climate Leaders Group met last month and explored challenges and best practice around measuring, reporting and reducing scope 3 emissions.
Scope 3 emissions has emerged as a common challenge for the Climate Leaders, including how to determine what to include in scope, the best method and tools for measurement, and how to influence your supply chain.
The group was joined at the meeting by Natalie Francis, Senior Carbon Management Consultant at Mott Macdonald, who shared insights from her experience working with organisations on their scope 3 emissions.
We have produced a FAQ document to share some of the key information that emerged from the meeting, to help all organisations gain a greater understanding of why and how to measure and reduce their scope 3 emissions. It’s worth noting that scope 3 is a vital, but challenging area, and there aren’t always easy answers!
The Climate Leaders Group is comprised of organisations that have committed to be carbon neutral by 2030 and have a plan for how they will reduce their emissions.
Through sharing experience and best practice, identifying solutions to challenges and promoting progress made, the group aims to accelerate their own, and the city’s, progress towards carbon neutrality and climate resilience, to help achieve the goals of the One City Climate Strategy.
The group is part of the Partnership’s wider Climate Action programme, due to be launched in full in April, supported by sponsors NatWest and Bristol City Council. The programme will include a range of events, resources and peer-to-peer learning opportunities to enable organisations to reduce their carbon emissions, whatever their starting point.
