OMV is committed to reducing its own carbon footprint and helping its customers reduce theirs.
SAF Business Solutions is tailored to help companies achieve their climate targets in terms of Scope 3 emissions. For example, when travelling on business flights or transporting goods by plane.
In cooperation with the Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB), OMV has developed a chain-of-custody platform that enables the environmental benefits of SAF to be decoupled from the physical product and transferred to a company in the form of a verifiable certificate. The main advantage over CO2 offsetting is the real and immediate reduction of emissions at the source.
Reducing Scope 3 emissions in 3 steps
What are Scope 3 emissions?
According to the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, Scope 3 emissions are indirect greenhouse gas emissions that result from activities that are not directly caused by a company but are generated by its business activities. These emissions are generated across a company's entire value chain. They include emissions from the use of products sold, business travel, the production of raw materials, the transportation of goods and the disposal of waste.
Scope 3 emissions are crucial for a comprehensive assessment of a company's environmental impact and require careful analysis and inclusion of various external sources to take appropriate measures to reduce these emissions.
What is a chain-of-custody model?
Generally speaking, a chain-of-custody model is a system that tracks the exact progress and complete documentation of a product or good along the entire supply chain. The origin, manufacture, processing, and transport of a product can be monitored and documented using this model. Companies can ensure compliance with standards, certifications, or sustainable practices along their supply chain by implementing a chain-of-custody model.
OMV’s piloted platform is guided by the RSB Book & Claim System – a set of principles and online tracking system that has been developed through a global multi-stakeholder process to ensure that the use of this chain of custody model provides full traceability and credibility, as well as a demonstrable climate impact.
