Carbon Efficiency is an essential value in determining the environmental impact of a product, as it takes both the product’s lifespan and the space used into account.

A Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) calculates the environmental footprint of a product throughout its life.

An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is a standardised document that provides information about a product’s environmental and human health impact.

You need the following data and assessment for certifications:

Scope 1 refers to direct emissions that are owned or controlled by the organisation. This may include the combustion of fossil fuels, industrial processes, and transportation.

Scope 2 refers to the indirect emissions created from energy acquisition from external providers, such as a utility company. Although Scope 2 emissions are not produced by the reporting company, the entity is still indirectly responsible for those emissions.

Scope 3 refers to the indirect emissions created by an organisation’s activity. There are 15 different categories in Scope 3, including purchased goods or services, business travel, a product’s end of life, and the use of a sold product.
