Notes to scope 3 supply chain emissions
We endorse the importance of supply chain responsibility. This includes the need to provide maximum transparency on developments at our suppliers. For this reason, we have calculated our supply chain emissions for more categories in 2015. The scope 3 emissions are given below.
Total supply chain emissions
Our total supply chain emissions were just over 126,000 tonnes.
The calculation was performed, making use of readily accessible data sources. This means that we look at our expenditures and consumption per product or service group, multiplied by internationally accepted CO2 coefficients per group. These are supplemented with specific CO2 data of our contractors (CO2 performance ladder). The scope 3 emissions for 2014 and 2015 are exclusive of Endinet. In the coming year we will strive to provide further transparency on the supply chain emissions and will report on these emissions on an ongoing basis.
