Product Carbon Footprint

Supporting your company’s EcoDesign strategy

One key indicator to assess the environmental side of electronics is the Product Carbon Footprint (PCF). Along the entire life cycle of a product, climate-relevant impacts arise in the form of greenhouse gas emissions. Through PCF a company can identify, analyze and reduce, or even better, avoid these impacts. As an outcome, products can actively be improved throughout their entire life cycle.
  
We offer consulting and environmental compliance services to manufacturers of electronic and electrical equipment (EEE). We are aiming at a holistic approach in achieving a sustainable solution that goes beyond mere compliance requirements.
  
In order to provide guidance on the calculation of PCF indicators we offer services for

  • Requirements definition and initial setup for PCF projects
  • Establishment of a methodological and operational framework using established norms and standards, tools and databases
  • Implementation of exemplary case studies
  • Support in the choice of data, tools, the scaling and adaption of secondary data sets
  • Consideration of allocations, application of cut-off criteria and sensitivity analysis
  • Development of Life Cycle Assessments (LCA) using our commercial GaBi Software licence™ and data sets
  • Interpretation and dissemination of the results
  • Support in the preparation of documentations for official review, e.g. under ISO 14067
