Our carbon footprint solution enables you to identify hot spots and to derive measures to reduce your greenhouse gas emissions. Achieve your sustainability goals by determining and cutting the climate impact of your product.
More than ever, protecting the climate has taken center stage in the public's mind. Companies focus not only on cost savings but also on their contribution to a sustainable and liveable future - two goals that often go hand in hand. So carbon transparency and disclosure is increasingly becoming the focus of today's companies.
Since the carbon footprint must be analyzed over the entire product life cycle, data collection represents an enormous effort. Our solutions support you step by step gathering the relevant data, e.g. by providing global warming potential factors (GWP) for upstream processes such as raw materials extraction.
✔With the iPoint Suite as single point of information, you no longer need to log in to numerous portals
✔Re-use compliance data in order to calculate carbon footprints
✔Overcome knowledge silos within your organization and experience the benefits of a shared database
✔Take a holistic view on product development and the supply chain
✔ Connect data to company-internal systems (e.g. ERP such as SAP).
✔ Collect data both internally and from suppliers
✔ LCA experts create models that can be used to automate product carbon transparency
✔ Non-Carbon Experts (like top managers, plant managers and engineers) receive a role-specific web application
✔ Get the most out of carbon footprinting and create opportunities: all relevant business units can use interactive views of sustainability information to benefit from them
The Product Carbon Footprint (PCF) is the most known method for analyzing the climate impact of a product. During the entire life cycle of a product – from raw material extraction to disposal – climate-relevant greenhouse gases are emitted. A carbon footprint supports you in identifying and analyzing these impacts, in order to reduce or avoid greenhouse gas emissions.
Additionally, there is the Corporate Carbon Footprint (CCF), focusing on the climate impact of the entire company.
PCF & CCF accounting is voluntary, but is carried out according to recognized international standards, such as the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GGP), which also forms the basis of ISO standard 14064 (Environmental Management - Measurement, Reporting and Verification of Greenhouse Gas Emissions).
CDP is a non-profit organization founded in London in 2000 as The Carbon Disclosure Project with the aim of encouraging companies and local authorities to publish their Greenhouse Gas Emissions. Today also other environmental data, beyond greenhouse gas emissions, such as water consumption, or forest cultivation is collected and analyzed by CDP. Once a year, the CDP requests companies and their suppliers on behalf of investors to report on their CO2 emissions, climate risks, reduction targets and strategies of companies using CDPs standardized questionnaires. The CDP manages what is now the world's largest database on corporate carbon disclosure.
