Environmental Carbon Footprint Services

Carbon Footprint accounts for the full inventory of all greenhouse gas emissions released throughout the product life cycle and focuses on one metric in CO2-eq. units.  The life cycle analysis process and procedures are required to calculate the carbon footprint.  Companies determining the carbon footprint of their products can benefit from the assistance of an external LCA practitioner. LCA Design Corporation conducts carbon footprint calculations based on ISO 14067:2018 standards which specifies the principles, requirements and guidelines for the quantification and reporting of the carbon footprint of a product and also in compliance with ISO 14040/44 standards for life cycle assessment.
