We talk about insetting when residual greenhouse gas emissions are avoided, reduced or removed by activating mitigation projects that are located within the company’s supply chain (what the Greenhouse Gas Protocol defines as Scope 3).

To do this, a company will need to map its supply chain and promote investment in carbon reduction projects within it. Insetting thus enables companies to meet their emission reduction targets while having a positive impact on ecosystems and communities along the supply chain.

For example, a regenerative agriculture project that is activated directly with its raw material suppliers is an insetting activity. Likewise, an investment for the production of renewable energy at its own manufacturer of manufactured products, is also an insetting activity.

Insetting is an innovative concept that integrates the sustainability of its supply chain with the balancing of carbon emissions, affirming the brand as a leader in the fight against climate change.
