deeply understand your emissions hotspots
What can I use my corporate greenhouse gas inventory for?
A Corporate Inventory evaluates the overall emissions associated with a business, including Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions. It can be used to identify ways to reduce emissions and make commitments for climate actions. A Corporate Inventory is required as a baseline to set emissions reductions or Net Zero targets in line with the Science Based Targets Initiative. Corporate Inventories are also highly encouraged by a number of organizations, including the CDP and many ESG financial reporting standards.
Can you help with net zero planning?
Yes! Planet FWD will provide you with the data and tools to develop an emissions reduction plan. Your Corporate Inventory helps you set a high-level emissions reduction target, and Scope 3 decarbonization will surface the most granular, material emissions reduction actions. Utilizing our software capabilities will help you achieve your climate action goals.
How specific are the decarbonization recommendations that you are making?
Our LCA database and models enable us to surface very specific recommendations for decarbonization. The integration of LCA information with Corporate Inventories means you can understand all emissions drivers down to the farm-level. Our tools aggregate recommendations for you based on the most impactful levers for emissions reductions. This includes how different farming practices and inputs, processing methods and energy sources, processing locations, and other partners could reduce emission. With supplier-specific data, you can understand the impacts of different suppliers and scenario-plan for different supplier mixes.
What is a Corporate Inventory?
A Corporate Inventory evaluates the overall emissions associated with a business. It includes Scope 1 & 2 emissions directly related to a company’s operations as well as Scope 3 emissions related to the company’s purchases, distribution and product use, and other activities like business travel and employee commuting.
What is the difference between a Product Life Cycle Assessment and a Corporate Inventory?
A product LCA evaluates the greenhouse gas emissions of a product, including raw materials, processing, production, distribution and storage, use, and end-of-life. Product LCAs typically exclude emissions from the equipment used to produce the goods as well as any company overhead.
A Corporate Inventory evaluates the overall emissions associated with a business, not just those directly related to the production of the product, It includes Scope 1 & 2 emissions directly related a company’s operations as well as Scope 3 emissions related to the company’s purchases, distribution and product use, and other activities like business travel and employee commuting.
A Corporate Inventory will typically include all emissions associated with its products AND other emissions related to running the business. A Corporate Inventory is best suited for evaluating emissions reductions across a company. A Product LCA supports designing for lower emissions, carbon labeling for transparency, and other potential marketing claims.
