Business value

Organizations need to track emissions from assets where they are the lessee and lessor. These are typically reported in scope 3 categories 8 and 13. Depending on operational control, however, emissions may be reported in scopes 1 and 2. Activities included in 8 and 13 are any fuel- and power-related emissions that occur within an organization’s operations from a leased facility or asset. This feature will enable Microsoft Sustainability Manager to calculate these emissions according to the activity, such as fuel or electricity, but also report aligned to scope 3 categories 8 and 13. These two respective alignments will enable practitioners to track categories 8 and 13 within Microsoft Sustainability Manager, which is the first step needed to reach goals aligned to leased assets.
