The term first appeared in the Green House Gas Protocol of 2001 and today, Scopes are the basis for mandatory GHG reporting in the UK.

If you’re hearing about Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions for the first time, it’s unlikely to be the last. Think of it in terms of three categories of emissions;

Scope 1 emissions— This one covers the Green House Gas (GHG) emissions that a company makes directly — for example while running its boilers and vehicles.
Scope 2 emissions — These are the emissions it makes indirectly – like when the electricity or energy it buys for heating and cooling buildings, is being produced on its behalf.
Scope 3 emissions — In this category all the emissions associated with the supply chain, not with the company itself, but including raw materials and their production.

For many businesses, Scope 3 emissions account for more than 70 percent of their carbon footprint.
