By carrying out a greenhouse gas emissions assessment or carbon footprint, we know the amount of greenhouse gases that are emitted into the atmosphere by human activity: individuals, companies or organisations...
The carbon footprint varies according to sectors and activities depending on the intensity of fossil energy use: transport, agriculture, energy production, extractive or processing industry, construction, distribution, IT and technologies, services...

The company's direct greenhouse gas emissions
These are greenhouse gases directly emitted at company level.
Indirect energy-related emissions
These are mainly emissions related to electricity. They are not generated directly at the workplace, but at production level (combustion at a gas-fired power plant for example).
These are all other emissions.
Scope 3 is very broad by definition and generally accounts for the vast majority of emissions related to a company's activity.
If you don’t take Scope 3 into account, you would have a very incomplete image of your company's carbon footprint.
Some examples of Scope 3 emissions:
CAP Conseil is trained in carbon footprint assessment and can guide you to measure yours.
We also cooperate with a network of privileged partners who are also trained in this subject matter.
