Executive Summary

Firms find measuring and managing value chain scope 3 emissions – indirect greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions arising along the value chain and outside a firm’s direct control – a challenge. On August 2, 2012, carbon reduction consultancy the Carbon Trust and sustainability software firm CRedit360 announced a new commercial partnership to deliver a series of software solutions to help firms manage value chain scope 3 emissions. The first of these is the Value Chain Hotspotter solution. This report helps sustainability executives to understand the features of the Value Chain Hotspotter software, the benefits of scope 3 measurement and reporting, and how this type of software fits in to the broader sustainability software space. Verdantix analysis finds that footprinting software modules fill a gap between energy management and LCA software.
