Product Carbon Footprint Software & Consulting

Gas emissions that contribute to the global warming effect, are measured as the Product Carbon Footprint (PCF)

During a product’s life cycle, energy is required to extract, transport and refine raw materials, to manufacture and distribute the final product, and treat the waste at the end of its useful life.

 

As fossil energy carriers currently play the main role in supplying energy, all of the above listed steps are associated with the generation and release of greenhouse gases (GHG) such as carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, etc. These gas emissions in turn contribute to the global warming effect, which is measured as the Product Carbon Footprint (PCF).

Life Cycle Assessment - the premier methodology in determining a Product Carbon Footprint

A Life Cycle Assessment according to ISO 14044 (as well as in the BSI PAS2050) is the premier methodology in determining a Product Carbon Footprint.

 

Facilitating such a ‘cradle-to-grave’ carbon footprint analysis of your product will disclose your real Product Carbon Footprint (PCF), reveal reduction potentials and highlight negative trade-offs, e.g. the shifting of environmental burdens from one stage of the life cycle to another. It is impossible to rely only on company specific data to properly conduct a Life Cycle Assessment and still comply with the high requirements of the international standards.

Service & Solution

Our GaBi software allows all the GHG emissions of your product to be captured in a systematic and transparent way.

Primary data specific to your product can then be incorporated into your analyses and combined with secondary data on GHG emissions available from the GaBi databases.

 

Once we have helped you determine and analyse your carbon footprint, the next step is to reduce it and make your products carbon neutral. Reduction methodologies may include energy efficiency, material substitution, fuel switching, eco-design etc.

 

In order to achieve carbon neutrality, unavoidable carbon emissions can be offset by investing in emission reduction projects.
