The Carbon Footprint per Product is obtained by measuring the greenhouse gases emitted during the whole life cycle of a product: from the extraction of raw materials, through processing and manufacturing and distribution, to the stage of use and end of life (deposit, reuse or recycling).
Through the emissions analysis, an organization can reduce the levels of pollution that occur during production processes. This is a mechanism that provides the company with an indicator of the environmental impact associated with its activities, which is increasingly present in the business environment (especially in industry).
Carbon Footprint per Product: Performance
ISO 14067 ISO 14067 establishes an internationally recognized frame of reference for the calculation of the Carbon Footprint of each Product. The standard provides criteria that will allow the carbon footprint per product, which today has become a tool necessary to compete in international markets, to be comparable worldwide.
ISO 14067 bases the calculation of the Carbon Footprint on the methodological principles of the life cycle analysis, which allows to discern in which phase the greater emission of greenhouse gases occurs, provides much information to correctly identify the opportunities for improvement and permits to apply the efforts in the right place, with the maximum effectiveness.
