A Product Carbon Footprint (PCF) quantifies Greenhouse Gas emissions of a product along its value chain. Find out how you can improve your products!
A PCF quantifies GHG emissions of products, taking into account materials used, energy consumed, transports, use of the product and the end of life.
Knowing the emissions and subsequently, the hotspots in your products are the basis for reducing GHG emissions.
A PCF can also be used for communicating improvements to your clients.
An Organizational Carbon Footprint (OCF) analyzes the Greenhouse Gas emissions of your entire company. Learn where you can improve the most!
OCF takes the approach of a carbon footprint and applies it to an entire organization. It creates an inventory of GHG emissions of an organization, taking into account all sites or business units and their respective emissions.
It also allows for analyzing the impact of improvement measures on the overall organizational performance and can contribute to your Environmental Management System by providing valuable information.
