Barbara Nebel from thinkstep Australasia and Sean Weaver from EKOS present for a 30 minute “Straight from the Horse’s Mouth” webinar.
Carbon footprint messages are increasingly used as a competitive advantage in the market place. The standard clearly defines how the calculation needs to be done, how the system boundaries are chosen, including the use phase and end of life. The standard makes reliable and comparable parameters available to organisations and consumers so that we can compare “apples with apples”
There is finally international agreement on how to calculate the carbon footprint of products. A few days ago 85% of the member states approved ISO FDIS 14067 (Greenhouse gases – Carbon footprint of products – Requirements and guidelines for quantification”). What does the new ISO standard mean for your company and your country? What are the critical details? How does is relate to other standards?
