Carbon Transparency as a Catalyst for Business Success
Against the backdrop of rising energy and commodity prices, companies feel increasing pressure to make their production processes and their consumption of energy and raw materials more efficient. At the same time, sustainability is now an important purchasing consideration for many customers. Consumer expectations may include a dedicated corporate sustainability approach that covers not only production processes, but also the entire supply chain including contractors, suppliers and others. A detailed carbon life cycle assessment of your products or services is therefore an important and useful source of information.
First Climate is a well-regarded, competent partner for the accounting of greenhouse gas emissions and provides carbon centered life cycle assessments.
What is Included in a Life Cycle Assessment?
Our life cycle assessments analyze the climate impact inherent to the production of goods, at all stages of the value chain. Unlike a company’s carbon footprint, which focuses only on those processes that are subject to the direct influence of the company, a life cycle assessment also incorporates emissions from sources outside the corporate boundary. Examples may be energy consumption in connection with the extraction of raw materials, the subcontractor’s manufacturing processes or logistics. A life cycle assessment also analyzes how a product is used, and specific demands there are for disposal or recycling at the end of its useful life.
