Scope 2 & 3 Emissions: How to navigate through the weeds and focus on what is important
Emissions from electricity and heat utilized on site (known as scope 2 emissions) and emissions from the entire value chain of activity that contributes to your process upstream and downstream (known as scope 3 emissions) also need to be understood and reduced to tackle climate change.
This course focuses on scope 2 and scope 3 emissions that are generated due to the production of oil and gas products. Lifecycle emissions is a term often used when looking at a product at every stage of its process. Although lifecycle is a broad term, this course will look at all the emissions that need to be considered with different inputs into the product as well as future use and disposal. By looking at the lifecycle of emissions upstream, midstream, downstream, oilfield services (OFS), and the end consumer all play a role. This course continues to give an overview on how to quantify the emissions identified and give real life examples of emissions across the value chain.
Corporate action in reducing scope 2 and 3 emissions is advantageous for businesses as there are many benefits, perhaps not directly obvious. You should take this course if the following sounds familiar to you:
- Are your shareholders or boards demanding accountability for emissions reductions?
- Are your stakeholders pressuring your company for emissions reduction?
- Are your clients (i.e. oil and gas companies) demanding emissions reporting and reductions?
- Are you curious how to reduce emissions across the value chain?
Who should attend?
The specific target audiences are as follows:
- Senior leadership who set the vision for their company
- Communications teams who publish public facing reports
- OFS company providers looking to sell into a market that demands low emission services
- Environmental and regulatory personnel who are tasked with emissions reduction efforts
after taking this course, learners will be equipped with the following skills:
- Ability to identify upstream and downstream emissions sources
- Basic understanding of scope 2 & 3 emissions quantification
- Identification of largest source of emissions reduction potential
- Understanding on reporting mechanisms for scope 2 & 3 emissions
