Vaidehi has been working as a sustainability intern at the JHU Office of Sustainability. Here is a quick glance at her journey:
Out of the 15 Scope 3 categories, she worked on estimating the Scope 3 emissions in the purchased goods category and incorporating her knowledge on life cycle assessments (LCA) as needed.
The lack of consistent and reliable data poses a great challenge while calculating Scope 3 emissions, and the search for technological solutions that can enhance the coverage and reliability of Scope 3 emissions data goes on. Extrapolation of these datasets can supplement our decarbonization efforts.
