Product Carbon Footprint

A life cycle assessment of your product's carbon emissions

Calculating product carbon footprints

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 your value chain. 

Product Carbon Footprint (PCF) calculations consider the entire life cycle of your product. This means delving into the raw materials that make up your product, how its manufactured, transported, used and disposed of. At ClimatePartner, we carry out cradle-to-customer analysis. This includes all steps within your supply chain excluding the usage phase. A product carbon footprint is relevant to your business if you'd like to understand the impact of individual products your produce, want to offer Climate Neutral products and set strong carbon reduction targets relative to what you produce. 

What can I expect from a product carbon footprint? 

  • A holistic understanding of your 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
