Establish your carbon footprint for products or services professionally and cost-effectively with SCS Global Services. We specialize in helping you understand your life cycle GHG impacts, identify hot spots in your supply chain, determine continuous improvement strategies, and satisfy customer and stakeholder expectations. Your product carbon footprint can be generated in conformance to the World Resource Institute (WRI) GHG Protocol, PAS 2050, or ISO 14067.
Our expert team is ISO 14065 accredited to provide thorough greenhouse gas (GHG) product analyses. We can help you better understand, model, and calculate Scope 1, Scope 2, and Scope 3 emissions for your products and services. We can also provide third-party validation of products that have already been footprinted and require carbon labeling.
Product carbon footprints can be used by organizations of all sizes and types, in any location, to assess the climate change impacts of your products and services.
Assessing greenhouse gas levels is based on the life cycle of your product or service. Product carbon footprinting involves assessing emissions from all sources of activities including: raw material extraction and processing, manufacturing, transportation and distribution, use, and end-of-life.
We utilize PAS 2050, WRI/WBCSD GHG Protocol, or ISO 14067 accounting methodology to establish your carbon footprint.
Levels of impact captured by carbon footprint approaches vary based on the data collected, the impacts included, and the calculation methods used.
Carbon footprint labeling is also an option for companies who wish to communicate their results to customers and stakeholders. Various carbon footprint labels have been developed by different carbon accounting schemes. Businesses that wish to use a carbon label are required to have their product assessment verified by a third party.
While GHG emissions are often viewed at the organizational level, best practice has been for organizations to extend the scope of their carbon footprints to include the impacts of the goods and services they produce.
Measuring the existing life cycle GHG emissions of your products helps to:
