CO₂ Emissions across the Supply Chain
FY 2017/3 marks the fifth year since the Scope 3 Standards were released for the first time in FY 2013/3.
Compared with the previous fiscal year, CO₂ emissions decreased by 1,880 kilotons.
The main factors behind the decrease are a dropin shipped hardware products (1,360 kilotons)for Category 11 (Use of Sold Products), and a reversion from the revised method of calculation for Category that went into effect last fiscal year back to the former method (430 kiloton decrease).
Scope 3 statistics are based on the Scope 3 Standards issued by the GHG Protocol Initiative in October 2011. These statistics have been independently reviewed by JQA and found to be transparent and reliable.
