Karbon Ayak İzi

PE INTERNATIONAL, ürün karbon ayak izi ve kurumsal karbon ayak izinizi belirleme, analiz etme, azaltma ve dengeleme konularında size yardımcı olur.

İklim değişikliği, dünya nüfusunun ve doğanın karşılaşmakta olduğu başlıca sorunlardan biridir. Bu değişiklik, gittikçe artan bir oranda atmosfere yayılan sera gazı emisyonları nedeniyle ortaya çıkmaktadır. Karbon ayak izi miktarının belirlenmesi ve azaltılması iklim değişikliğinin önlenmesinde büyük önem taşımaktadır. Bu bağlamda enerji verimliliğinin arttırılması, karbon emisyonlarının yeşil enerji kullanımıyla azaltılması ve  bunu takiben arta kalan sera gazı emisyonlarının nötrlenmesi hedefiyle karbon dengeleme yatırımları yapılması gibi yöntemler  kullanılmaktadır.

 

Dünya çapında 2500’den fazla şirket danışmanlık hizmeti ve yazılım çözümlerimize güvenmektedir. Ürün ve Kurumsal Karbon Ayak İzi bölümünde referans projelerimizle  ilgili ayrıntılı bilgiler sunulmaktadır.

Carbon Footprint analysis is the key

A Carbon Footprint measures the total greenhouse gas emissions caused directly and indirectly by a person, organisation, event or product.

Carbon Footprint quantification analysis and reduction are key to preventing this change by, for example, enhancing energy efficiency, mitigating carbon emissions by means of green energy and then compensating for remaining GHG emissions by investing in carbon offsets, with a final goal of being carbon neutral.

 

Over 2500 companies worldwide have trust in our Carbon Footprint consulting and software solutions.

What is a Carbon Footprint?

Carbon Footprint (CF) – also named Carbon profile - is the overall amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions (e.g. methane, laughing gas, etc.) associated with a product, along its supply-chain and sometimes including from use and end-of-life recovery and disposal.

Causes of these emissions are, for example, electricity production in power plants, heating with fossil fuels, transport operations and other industrial and agricultural processes.

 

The carbon footprint is quantified using indicators such as the Global Warming Potential (GWP). As defined by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), a GWP is an indicator that reflects the relative effect of a greenhouse gas in terms of climate change considering a fixed time period, such as 100 years (GWP100). The GWPs for different emissions can then be added together to give one single indicator that expresses the overall contribution to climate change of these emissions.

Carbon Footprint & LCA

The Carbon Footprint is a sub-set of the data covered by a more complete Life Cycle Assessment (LCA).

LCA is an internationally standardized method (ISO 14040, ISO 14044) for the evaluation of the environmental burdens and resources consumed along the life cycle of products; from the extraction of raw materials, the manufacture of goods, their use by final consumers or for the provision of a service, recycling, energy recovery and ultimate disposal.

 

One of the key impact categories considered in an LCA is climate change, typically using the IPCC characterization factors for CO2 equivalents. Hence, a carbon footprint is a life cycle assessment with the analysis limited to emissions that have an effect on climate change.

 

Suitable background data sources for the footprint are therefore those available in existing LCA databases. These databases contain the life cycle profiles of the goods and services that you purchase, as well as of many of the underlying materials, energy sources, transport and other services.
