Product Carbon Footprint

A life cycle assessment of your product's carbon emissions

Calculate your product's environmental footprint

Combining more than a decade of consulting experience with easy-to-use software, we can help you understand the carbon footprint of your products throughout the value chain.

Product Carbon Footprint (PCF) calculations consider carbon emissions from raw materials and manufacturing to retail (cradle-to-gate) or can go further by including the use phase and end-of-life scenarios (cradle-to-grave). We typically recommend the latter as a more holistic approach, but often the use phase is not relevant or excluded due to variability of scenarios.

What you can expect from a PCF calculation?

  • Holistic understanding of a product's impact on global warming
  • Identification of emissions hotspots and where your investments can yield the greatest impact
  • Ability to offset the unavoidable emissions to make your products Climate Neutral
