A methodological approach for calculating product carbon footprints.
 
Our new whitepaper introduces a methodological approach for calculating the product carbon footprint considering industry-specific challenges and characteristics. The methodology is based on the extensive knowledge and experience of #LCA practitioners. It enables and simplifies the calculation of product carbon footprint for electronic products, delivering robust and representative results which are compliant with existing standards and regulations.

1) Focus on primary data.
2) Participate in industry and product-specific standards development.
3) Understand the limitations of your chosen protocol, but don’t deviate from it.
4) Temper your communications goals, at least for the time being

The notion of #sustainability with the objective of treating natural resources with respect and reducing emissions is a firmly anchored principle of dm-drogerie markt.
Ongoing analyses of #CO2 emissions sources are therefore of central importance. dm's involvement in the Product #Carbon #Footprint pilot project has served to make the company much more aware of the future-relevant subject of CO2 balancing, in order to incorporate this notion across the board of all its legal and contractual duties.

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

Our 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 LCA 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.

Software Tool - Product Carbon Footprint

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

 

GaBi Databases - 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.
