The carbon footprint states, asCO2equivalent the total greenhouse gases emissions associated directly or indirectly with a product, an organisation or a service. The greenhouse gases considered are: carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) and perfluorocarbons (PFCs). The carbon footprint is regulated by the UNI ISO/TS 14067 (Greenhouse gases — Carbon footprint of products — Requirements and guidelines for quantification and communication) normative.
The measurement of the carbon footprint of a product or process requires the identification and quantification of raw materials and energy consumption along its life cycle. The procedure to be followed for this analysis is based on the Life Cycle Assessment. The measure unit used is tCO2eq (tons of CO2equivalent).
Those companies undertaking this analysis will receive a quantification of their environmental impact expressed as CO2 and will be able to communicate their commitment through the definition of a carbon management strategy, which leads to the reduction of greenhouse gases emissions associated with the product, service or organisation considered.
Targeted at companies delivering products or services. We offer consultation for the preparation of studies on Carbon Footprint according to the UNI ISO/TS 14067 normative, support during the verification from a third party entity and during the definition of a carbon management policy to reduce the greenhouse gases emission.
