What are Scope 3 carbon emissions and why do they matter?

11 May 2022

For many organisations Scope 3 carbon emissions account for more than 90% of their carbon footprint.

If you, like many forward-thinking organisations, are looking to decarbonise and want to - 

  • improve the resilience of your supply chains
  • minimise the risk of unexpected costs such as energy price hikes and
  • want to increase your adaptability to future climate and legislative challenges

- you can’t afford to ignore your Scope 3 emissions.

Join the experts from Ricardo for this informative webinar to explain what Scope 3 emissions are and how you can begin to tackle them.
