ISO 14067/PAS 2050: Carbon Footprint of Products
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is developing a new standard for the carbon footprint of products, ISO 14067.
Customers, consumers and shareholders are increasingly concerned with the environmental impact of the activities, products and services they consume. This may be a challenge, but it is also an opportunity. Carbon footprint verification enables you to demonstrate your environmental responsibility, stand out from the competition and show existing and potential customers proof of your commitment.
Your organization can demonstrate its commitment to reducing the impact of its daily operations on the environment with carbon footprint analysis by meeting the developing ISO 14067 standard.
The new standard builds largely on the existing ISO standards for life cycle assessments (ISO 14040/44) and environmental labels and declarations (ISO 14025) and is planned to be published by March 2012. It currently bears Committee Draft (CD) status, implying that the main provisions have been set and commenting is now taking place on a per-country basis.
PAS 2050 is a seed document for ISO 14067. Give your organization a competitive advantage; implement PAS 2050 and it will be easier to adopt ISO 14067 once it is released.
We also perform audits against additional, bespoke environmental performance criteria. We can either help your organization to develop the performance criteria and the checklist or simply check performance against existing measures covering your operations and your supplier network.
