Carbon Footprint

Reporting of GHG emissions generated throughout the life cycle of products, services and organisations (PAS 2050, GHG Protocol, ISO 14067 and ISO 14064-1)

The carbon footprint represents the emission of greenhouse gases attributable to a product or service, or to an organisation.
The carbon footprint of an organisation gives rise to a “Greenhouse Gas Inventory” related to annual business activity, to understand where and how much its carbon footprint falls, and how can it be managed later.
The carbon footprint of products or services considers the overall emissions of all life stages of the product/service 'from cradle to grave'.
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.
