Aether contributed to an analysis of scope 3 procurement emissions reporting in the Scottish public sector, as summarised in a ClimateXChange report for the Scottish Government.

The report covers the engagement with public bodies, suppliers, and a desk review of tools and methodologies relating to supply chain reporting. This report aims to demonstrate approaches and tools available to Scottish public bodies to understand and report their supply chain emissions and provide options for action to improve supply chain reporting across the public sector.
