Instructions for Supplier Questionnaire on Energy & Greenhouse Gas Emissions

A growing number of companies are measuring and reducing the GHG emissions associated with their value chains (Scope 3). Organizations can use the questionnaire as a starting point to understand the GHG emissions across their supply chains and engage suppliers on measuring and reducing their emissions. This questionnaire serves as a simple way to collect emissions-specific information from suppliers. Information reported in response to this questionnaire can also be leveraged to complete aspects of other questionnaires, such as CDP. Suppliers asked to assess their GHG emissions for the first time should feel more comfortable responding to any future requests to publicly report their GHG emissions after using this questionnaire. View the questionnaire instructions below and download the Supplier Questionnaire on Energy and GHG Emissions(2 pp, 105 K) .
