Scope 3 emissions (CenSA, 2010), with the majority of those
coming from the goods and services procured.
Reducing Scope 3 emissions will be essential for public sector
organizations to reach their environmental impact reduction
Detailed analysis of Scope 3 Greenhouse Gas emissions
Spikes Cavell has formed a strategic alliance with the
University of Edinburgh and ENDS Carbon to produce the Carbon
Monitor program – a suite of data-driven products that provide
detailed analysis of Scope 3 Greenhouse Gas emissions in the supply
chain that result from the goods and services procured.
CARBONMonitor75 highlights categories and
companies with the largest carbon footprint
is a data-driven, bottom-up analysis that highlights categories and
companies with the largest carbon footprint within the supply
The analysis is based on detailed spending data and provides a
list of potential suppliers and categories that should be reviewed

The outputs include measurement of Scope 3 emissions for the
