Emissions Calculation

Background​​

​A leading textile manufacturer in India approached FutureWear Group to develop a comprehensive strategy for calculating and reducing their Scope 3 emissions. With increasing regulatory pressures and a strong commitment to sustainability, accurate data calculation and reduction of Scope 3 emissions became a top priority​. 

Approach

1. Data Collection and Baseline Establishment:

  • Initial Assessment: Conducted an initial assessment to identify all potential sources of Scope 3 emissions, including raw material extraction, transportation, product use, and disposal.

  • Data Collection Framework: Developed a structured framework for data collection involving suppliers, logistics providers, and other stakeholders to gather consistent and accurate data across the supply chain.

  • Baseline Calculation: Utilized internationally recognized standards (e.g., GHG Protocol) to calculate the baseline Scope 3 emissions. This baseline data served as a reference point for measuring progress.
     

2. Emission Reduction Strategies:

  • Supplier Engagement: Collaborated with suppliers to identify emission reduction opportunities, including process optimization, adoption of cleaner technologies, and increased use of renewable energy.

  • Transport and Logistics Optimization: Worked with logistics partners to enhance transportation efficiency and reduce fuel consumption through route optimization, load consolidation, and the use of low-emission vehicles.

  • Product Lifecycle Management: Developed strategies to extend the product lifecycle and promote circular economy practices, focusing on designing products for durability, recyclability, and easy disassembly.
     

3. Compliance and Reporting:

  • Regulatory Alignment: Ensured all actions and strategies were aligned with EU regulations and guidelines on Scope 3 emissions, adhering to the EU Emissions Trading System (ETS) and other relevant frameworks.

  • Transparent Reporting: Created detailed reports documenting emission sources, reduction strategies, and achieved reductions to enhance transparency and build trust with stakeholders.
