As the world transitions toward net zero, ever-expanding carbon reporting requirements are putting pressure on companies to calculate their emissions. But reporting alone doesn’t guarantee progress toward Paris-aligned net-zero targets. Companies must take urgent action to reduce their carbon emissions – especially the scope 3 emissions from their suppliers, which account for nearly 90% of the average company’s emissions.

The latest addition to the Normative platform, the Carbon Network empowers businesses to dive into their scope 3 emissions more comprehensively, connect with primary carbon data sources, and embed that data in their own systems and planning – driving compliant reporting and verifiable emissions reduction.

Making supplier emissions visible

The Carbon Network helps businesses delve deeper into their scope 3 emissions by enabling them to collect, work with, and share supplier carbon data:

  • Collect carbon data – Scale data collection from suppliers and service providers that contribute to value chain emissions.
  • Work with carbon data – Report emissions compliantly, get increasingly responsive carbon insights, and integrate sustainability insights into business decision-making.
  • Share carbon data – Suppliers upload emissions data and other sustainability information to share with buyers, customers, and key stakeholders.

The network connects businesses with primary carbon data sources, such as their suppliers. This helps businesses scale data collection from suppliers and service providers, contributing to more accurate value chain emissions calculations.

With the improved insights they gain, these businesses can then strategically plan and implement the effective scope 3 reduction initiatives needed to meet net-zero targets.
