Building off the Corporate Standard, the Scope 3 Standard allows companies to account and report their full value chain impacts. Many companies find that 80% or more of their greenhouse gas emissions come from their value chain, which makes understanding and managing these impacts so important. After taking this training you will understand:
The benefits of completing and managing a Scope 3 inventory
How to identify and categorize your organization’s Scope 3 emissions
How to collect data and calculate emissions
How to set Scope 3 targets and credibly report performance to stakeholders
Practical approaches to implementation of the standard
The Scope 3 Standard training also includes new case studies from companies that have completed Scope 3 inventories and are already seeing benefits from their efforts.Download the course agenda here.

Q:I’m enrolled in the Scope 3 course and am having these common issues, can you help? 1. Checkmarks are not appearing next to completed lessons 2. I’ve completed my course and the certificate of completion will not generate
A:1. There is a technical glitch that sometimes prevents these checkmarks from showing up, and some students have reported that the back/forward arrows also don’t appear. We are currently working on resolving these issues, but they do not impact course functionality. Students will still be able to move back and forth through the course by clicking on the names of the different lessons in the navigation menu, and course progress is being recorded on the back end.
2. Once students complete a course a certificate is auto-generated. If it does not generate for you, we can manually send your certificate.
