Carbon Footprint Calculation

At Etteplan, we offer comprehensive carbon footprint calculation for products, services, projects, organizations, and buildings. Our carbon footprint calculation allows you to identify the most significant contributing factors to your carbon footprint, recognize areas for improvement and pursue low-carbon operations. Carbon footprint calculation can be used both to map existing operations and to assess the carbon footprint of a planned or pilot plant.

Today, an increasing number of companies are considering and sometimes even requiring the carbon footprint calculation. Also, e.g. financiers, other stakeholders or even legislation may demand the implementation of a carbon footprint calculation.

With carbon footprint calculation the climate change impacts, i.e. the carbon footprint (or global warming potential) during the life cycle of a product, service, building or organization can be de-termined. Our carbon footprint calculation provides not only a numerical value for the carbon footprint but also a clear overview and comprehensive understanding of the factors influencing it.

The benefits of carbon footprint calculation

The results of the carbon footprint calculation can be utilized in various ways:

  • Support research and development by identifying key contributing factors and areas for improvement in manufacturing processes or by comparing alternatives (materials, process technologies, etc.)
  • Aid in formulating climate goals and actions
  • Demonstrating your sustainability efforts to customers and stakeholders through communications and marketing
  • As a metric for emission monitoring

Your trusted partner in carbon footprint calculation

Our employed methods ensure reliable results, as carbon footprint calculations follow international standards, such as ISO 14040 and 14044 (life cycle assessment standards), ISO 14067 (product carbon footprint calculation standard), and Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG Protocol). Our experts will recommend the most appropriate methods of calculation tailored to your specific needs.

Carbon footprint calculation plays a crucial role in helping understand and reduce environmental impacts. By optimizing processes and making informed choices based on reliable data, you can work towards a more sustainable future.
