To ensure valid and complete reporting of the group’s carbon emissions in the future, Eltronic Group is now starting to collect data and document carbon emissions throughout the value chain – scope 1, 2, and now 3.
It is a clear priority for Eltronic Group to contribute to sustainable development. Among a number of other efforts, it is therefore essential to document the company’s carbon footprint. In the last two years, the group has measured and documented the carbon emissions that fall under the so-called scope 1 and 2 according to the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG). That is the direct and indirect emissions over which the group has control.
Now the time has come to go further into the value chain and focus on the emissions for which the Eltronic Group is indirectly responsible. These are the emissions that occur throughout the company’s value chain, from manufacturer to consumer. For a typical company, the scope 3 emissions cover a great part of all emissions.
In total, nine subsidiaries are part of Eltronic Group, and all must collect data that makes it possible to map the entire group’s carbon emissions.
