Carbon footprint, the ISO 14067 standard updated
Principles, requirements and guidelines for quantification and reporting on the CO2
footprint of products
To offer to any kind of organizations an instrument to calculate the CO2 footprint of their products and give a better understanding of the possibility to reduce it. This is the objective of the international standard ISO 14067 “Greenhouse gases - Carbon footprint of products - Requirements and guidelines for quantification,” which specifies principles, requirements and guidelines for calculating and reporting on the “carbon footprint of a product” (CFP).
The document, which will be adopted as UNI ISO standard, replaces the technical specification ISO/TS 14067 of 2013, introducing especially more consideration to the CFP quantification and clarifying the aspects such as calculation of electricity consumption. Moreover, the standard provides specific recommendations on quantification of emissions for agricultural and forestry products.
“It allows organizations to more accurately see where the main impacts on their CO2 footprint are generated related to the production of their products, and thus take appropriate actions to reduce it,” explains in a message Daniele Pernigotti, convenor of the working group which has developed the standard, considered by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) “a key way of contributing to the achievement of international climate action goals.”< /p>
