Downstream scope 3 emissions from processing of sold intermediate products by third parties (e.g., manufacturers) subsequent to sale by the reporting company.

Scope of emissions source

Scope 3 emissions are all indirect emissions – not included in scope 2 – that occur in the value chain of the reporting company, including both upstream and downstream emissions. In other words, emissions that are linked to the company’s operations. Activities covered by scope three emissions are diverse, but sit in two high level categories; upstream emissions related to purchased or acquired goods and services, and downstream emissions related predominantly to the sales of goods and services.

The 3rd party processing of products Log emission category includes emissions from processing of sold intermediate products by third parties (e.g., manufacturers) subsequent to sale by the reporting company. Intermediate products are products that require further processing, transformation, or inclusion in another product before use, and therefore result in emissions from processing subsequent to sale by the reporting company and before use by the end consumer. Emissions from processing should be allocated to the intermediate product.
