Scope 3 baseline, SBTi target setting and application
DSB is Denmark’s state-owned rail transportation provider, transporting 450,000 passengers every day across most of Denmark.
DSB had been measuring their CO2 emissions across scope 1 and 2 for several years, with a target of CO2-neutrality for these emissions by 2030. DSB wanted to expand their accountability to map out their carbon footprint across the entire value chain, and The Footprint Firm supported DSB in establishing their full scope 3 GHG baseline.
DSB’s value chain emissions were calculated in accordance with the GHG Protocol and the results were used as a basis for providing DSB with clear recommendations on a) how to reduce emissions, b) how to improve GHG calculations and underlying data going forward, and c) ambitious reduction targets aligned with the Science Based Target initiative.
Following this, we supported DSB in developing their Science Based Targets and facilitated their SBTi application, which is now pending SBTi’s validation.
