Food Category Scope 3 Tool

Supplier Product Carbon Footprint Assessments
As more society, industry, and government focus is placed on Scope 3 emissions, pressure on companies to measure and reduce emissions across the supply chain increases. Supplier emission reports from a tool like our GHG Leadership Assessment can provide an overall view of the supplier. But increasingly you will need to understand the impact of the specific products you buy. Only some of your suppliers will have product-level carbon footprint data, making calculating Scope 3 emissions on a product level challenging. And calculating your carbon footprint using emissions factors from databases is inaccurate and doesn’t allow you to account for reductions made by suppliers.

We Have a Solution.


Automatically calculates your Scope 3 footprint for each key food product category.

Incorporates emissions factors from publicly available sources AND product footprints reported by suppliers.

Provides a GHG Maturity Score for each supplier, based on their current reporting, targets, and progress

Tracks supplier performance on the key drivers of GHG emissions in each category

Helps you understand the quality of product-level carbon footprint data reported by your suppliers

Product Details

SupplyShift’s Food Category Scope 3 Tool is based on questionnaires developed by WRAP (The Waste and Resources Action Programme). The WRAP questionnaires were vetted and piloted with leading UK grocery retailers, testing with many suppliers across different product categories to understand how best to ask questions.

On top of the WRAP questionnaire, SupplyShift added a scoring methodology that allows you to quickly understand your suppliers’ performance. The Food Category Scope 3 Tools automatically calculates your Scope 3 footprint based on data provided by your suppliers and publicly available emissions factors. We also offer the flexibility to add your own emissions factors.

Food Category Scope 3 Tool currently lets you assess farm-level emissions in the top 10 GHG-emitting food categories:

  • Beef
  • Lamb
  • Poultry
  • Pork
  • Cheese
  • Warm Water Prawns
  • Bananas
  • Tomatoes
  • Coffee
  • Wine
