Carbon Footprint

Reporting of GHG emissions generated throughout the life cycle of products and services (PAS 2050, GHG Protocol and ISO 14067)

The carbon footprint represents the emission of greenhouse gases attributable to a product or service.
The carbon footprint of products or services can consider the overall GHG emissions of all life stages of the product/service 'from cradle to grave' or ‘from cradle to gate’ depending on the CFP-PCR (carbon footprint product category rules) or PCR (Product Category Rules) applicable (if any).
The CFP systematic approach is a series of activities developed by an organization through a set of procedures, in order to facilitate the development of CFPs for more products within the same organization. This is applicable when the same set of data and allocation procedures are applicable for all its products.
