The topic of carbon footprint measurement has become increasingly important and has spread from the largest to the smallest companies, especially with the emergence of the so-called "scope 3" approach, which is considered increasingly necessary to ensure a credible commitment to decarbonization by companies, involving the supply chain and, in more advanced versions ("scope 4"), the entire value chains, to cover the entire life cycle of products and services that the organization offers in the market, including their end-of-life. The most recognized international initiatives, such as the Science Based Target, require companies to report thoroughly and comprehensively on the emissions of their supply chains. The tools for measurement are diverse, although, for obvious reasons, the life-cycle approach is emerging as the most robust, especially from the perspective extended to value chains even downstream of the production and marketing of goods and delivery of services. At the same time, the need for credibility and "concreteness" in decarbonization strategies is leading to an increasing emphasis on in-setting initiatives, i.e., mitigation actions that actively involve value chain actors and benefit them, rather than off-setting, an action confined to the offsetting and neutralization approach through the acquisition of voluntary credits. Finally, economic monetization is also growing in relevance with the full take-off of emission trading systems and the trading of credits generated by voluntary actions under international certification schemes. The workshop aims to analyze the challenge of measuring CO2eq emissions in its various dimensions, placing itself primarily from the perspective of businesses.
