Product Carbon Footprint (PCF) Training

Product carbon footprint training from SGS – meet international life cycle calculation standards.

Product carbon footprinting (PCF) is an approach to calculating the life cycle emissions of a product or service. For a product this includes analysis of the various life cycle stages from raw material extraction and processing, manufacture, distribution, use phase and end of life treatment. Many companies now use this approach to gain a better understanding of carbon emissions through their supply chains and to identify efficiency opportunities.

A number of standards have been developed in this area including PAS 2050 and the WRI/WBCSD GHG Protocol: Product Life Cycle Accounting and Reporting Standard. Additionally, a new standard, ISO 14067, is in development. This course provides delegates with an understanding of:

  • The process for undertaking a PCF
  • PCF Standards (ISO 14067, PAS 2050, WRI Life Cycle Standard)*
  • Defining Boundaries
  • PCF Quantification
  • Reporting
  • Preparing for Verification

    *note courses may focus on one standard

This course is suitable for those wishing to gain a practical understanding for how to develop and quantify a PCF, and knowledge of the requirements of PCF standards.

The training comprises lecture and workshop exercises.
