Scope 2 & 3 Emissions: How to navigate through the weeds and focus on what is important (July 22, 2021)

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?  


This live course is delivered by Jessica Shumlich, CEO, Highwood Emissions Management, in partnership with JWN Energy and the Daily Oil Bulletin.

Learning Outcomes:

After the course, the learner will have the basic tools to understand where emissions come from across the value chain, and what methodologies there are for reporting. Students will be equipped with a strong foundation for what data is needed for quantifying and reporting and how to develop a greenhouse gas emissions inventory that includes all emissions.

As a result of 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
