Our Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Inventories

PagerDuty’s greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory has been conducted in accordance with the GHG Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard and Corporate Value Chain (Scope 3) Standard. We occasionally recalculate prior year emissions with the benefit of more precise data and emission factors.

Direct (Scope 1) Emissions 

These include natural gas and fugitive emissions in all PagerDuty real estate globally, including short- and long-term leases.

Indirect (Scope 2) Emissions 

Scope 2 emissions are reported using both location-based and market-based approaches. Actual energy consumption is used when available; where unavailable, energy consumption is estimated using the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) Commercial Buildings Energy Consumption Survey (CBECS). 

Value-Chain (Scope 3) Emissions 

Our Scope 3 inventory consists of emissions from the following Scope 3 categories:

  • Purchased goods and services (category 1)
  • Capital goods (category 2)
  • Fuel and energy-related activities (category 3)
  • Waste generated in operations (category 5) 
  • Business travel (category 6) 
  • Employee commuting, both physical commute and remote/telework (Category 7)

To analyze emissions from our purchased goods and services and capital goods, we used a globally accepted, industry-specific, spend-based methodology covering 100% of our total supplier spend. 

Our employee commuting emissions include both physical commute and remote/telework to/from all PagerDuty real estate globally, including short- and long-term leases, as well as co-working spaces.
