Scope 3 Mapping
Mapping emissions provides greater insight into your supply chain risks.
A company’s carbon footprint is divided into three scopes, where Scope 3 emissions represent the emission sources in a company’s upstream and downstream value chain. Carbon accounting is increasingly focusing on these indirect emissions, especially in a company’s supply chain, because it is often here the majority of climate change impact occurs.
Our consultants are experts in the GHG Protocol and can assist your company in mapping, calculating, analyzing, and reporting on Scope 3 emissions in accordance with the international carbon accounting standard.
By assessing where the emission hotspots are, we can:
- identify risks in your supply chain
- provide a complete picture of your company’s climate impact
- help your company set targets and develop a low carbon strategy that engages suppliers and reduces climate impacts and supply chain risks.
Science Based Targets (SBT)
Aligning your targets with science ensures compliance with stakeholder expectations.
Aligning your climate targets with the latest science ensures compliance with stakeholder expectations.
We assist companies in setting emission reduction targets in line with the Paris Agreement and the established science on which it is based. Science-based targets allow companies to create their own GHG emission scenarios in line with their “fair share” of the global emission budget.
Our team helps you calculate your carbon budget and demonstrate how your company should reduce emissions according to science-based methodologies.
We are the only Nordic CDP accredited SBT partner, which means we are approved to develop emission reduction targets in line with SBTi requirements.

How to Start
Quantify your company’s GHG emissions and set a near and long-term target in line with the newest climate science. Recommended near-term target: between 5-10 years aligned with the 1.5°C warming scenario. Long-term target: reach net-zero for all scopes before 2050.
Reduce GHG emissions according to the Low carbon transition plan.
Take responsibility beyond your own value chain. By compensating with climate offsets from projects that are certified and aligned with the SDG’s for societal and environmental enhancement to remove emissions, it moves society in the right direction to reach a low-carbon economy.
- Measure all emissions in Scope 1, Scope 2 and relevant categories in Scope 3.
- Decarbonize your company’s emissions by reducing and innovating technological solutions to reach 90% reduction by 2050 and plan to offset the residual emissions with projects that remove or store CO2.
- Measure your emissions, as a minimum in Scope 1 and Scope 2.
- Reduce emissions while using climate offsets to compensate for the remaining emissions each year. Compensation with climate credits represents that the reduction for the same amount of purchased offsets has taken place elsewhere in the world through the project that you support.
CEMAsys has provided carbon credits to hundreds of customers yearly since 2007. We offer projects where you can compensate for emissions now while pursuing a decarbonization pathway to become net-zero through nature-based solutions that store CO2 over time.
- A carbon footprint analysis will confirm the quantity needed.
- Align sustainability strategy with carbon offsets and purchase carbon compensation and/or removal projects.
- CEMAsys prepares an offer for the proposed quantity, project, and type of credits.
- CEMAsys ensures that the carbon credit is retired from the registry and you receive a certificate of deleted credits.
- All projects are well documented and certified by high-quality standards (UN Gold Standard, VCS, etc) thus verified by independent third-party sources.
- CEMAsys is transparent in every transaction and has a large international customer portfolio and reference database.
