WP1: Calculating the carbon footprint

The corporate carbon footprint will be calculated based on international standards (Scope 1-3, according to the GHG Protocol). This work includes data collection, data entry into a web-based performance platform, data aggregation, and the calculation of greenhouse gases. The product carbon footprint will be assessed according to DIN EN 16258 for all delivery services including own resources and sub-contractors. Data collection will be based on primary data. If these are not fully available, additional modelled secondary data will be considered. The calculation of GHGs per services will be based on relevant parameters such as weight and distance. CO2 calculators for different activities, with the option to offset the calculated emissions online, are already available on myclimate’s website.
