The carbon footprint quantifies the amount of GHG emitted directly or indirectly by an organization, product or event, throughout its lifecycle. It is the first step to begin to implement measures of effective reduction of emissions. The carbon footprint It is more than just the measurement of the CO2 emitted, then consider all greenhouse gases involved in global warming, then the individual results of each gas into CO2-equivalent emissions. The calculation can be done according to different criteria:


  • Temporary HC (to analyze the yearly variation): nature in continuous
  • HC for one functional unit (product / service): useful for making comparisons between items
