Calculate your product carbon footprint including upstream and downstream emissions
In some countries of Europe, products are already sold along with comprehensive information about their carbon footprint, or more specifically, the impact the production and distribution of that product has on the environment and climate change. Even if no legal obligation for a product carbon footprint calculation exists until today, these calculations are more and more demanded and can be the decisive factor for winning a contract. Especially for the legally compliant implementation of the EU taxonomy (Regulation (EU) 2020/852 of the European Parliament and the Council), life cycle assessments (LCA) or product carbon footprints are an integral part of the sustainability strategy. The procedure to establish a PCF is normally quite complex, as the CO2 balance of a product is intended to reflect its emissions along the whole life cycle, for a defined use case and related to a defined unit (allocation).
