A carbon footprint is based on a life cycle assessment (LCA) but focuses on a single issue which is climate change.
A carbon footprint measures all greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with the life cycle of your product or service such as such as carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, etc. This helps reveal opportunities for reduction of emissions as well as prevent negative trade-offs, i.e. the shifting of environmental burdens from one stage of the life cycle to another.
Our Consultancy Team has the expertise to conduct product carbon footprints (PCF) in conformance with PAS 2050, the GHG Protocol and ISO 14067.
Below is an overview of the different standards.
