Methodology

Let’s say you’re an electric vehicle manufacturer. Although you provide greener transportation for the end user, your activities will still cause emissions. By accounting for Scope 1–3, we provide you with the necessary insight to cut your emissions. By analyzing your avoided emissions (Scope 4), we can help you assess how your products can help reduce the emissions of your customers.

GHG emissions

Scope 1: Company activity

Scope 1 measures your internal emissions, coming from a source owned or controlled by your company.
For example machinery that runs on fuel, company-owned combustion vehicle usage, AC and refrigerants.

Scope 2: Purchased energy

Measures the emissions from input energy used by your company.
Your everyday energy consumption will also cause emissions. We measure them through your electricity bill and purchased heating.

Scope 3: Value chain

Upstream or input emissions
These emissions come from suppliers creating your products or services – in this case electric vehicles.

All activities going into your business may cause what we call Upstream or Input emissions, through purchased materials, battery production and business travel.
Downstream or output emissions
Emissions may also occur due to handling of the finished product.

These emissions come from activities going out of your business. In this case when the electric car leaves the company’s possession. For example through increased electricity consumption due to usage of the vehicle, transportation to end-customer and end-of-life-treatment.

Scope 4: Avoided emissions

Lastly we account for how you, and the vehicle, affects emissions throughout your customers’ value chain.
This is where we excel and differ from most of our competitors. MoreScope can help you understand how you can lower your customer’s fuel usage, compensate for increased production and end-of-life treatment emissions. We also account for vehicle-to-grid effects.
