Scope 1, 2 und 3 bei Treibhausgas-Emissionen – uvex x-plore
Back to overview

Scope 1, 2 and 3

The terms “Scope 1”, “Scope 2” and “Scope 3” are used to describe different areas of greenhouse gas emissions caused by an organization.

Scope 1

These emissions refer to the direct emissions caused by an organization’s activities, such as the combustion of fossil fuels in its own facilities, process emissions and the use of refrigerants.

Scope 2

These emissions refer to the indirect emissions resulting from the purchase of electricity, heat or cooling produced and supplied by third parties. This takes into account the CO2 emissions generated by these energy sources.

Scope 3

These refer to all other indirect emissions caused by an organisation’s activities along the value chain, such as emissions from purchasing raw materials, transporting goods, providing services or disposing of waste.

At uvex

uvex already calculates Scope 1 and 2 and publishes these transparently in its sustainability report. We are currently working on the calculation of Scope 3.
