ISO 14067 Verification – Greenhouse Gases – Carbon Footprint of Products

Quantify and report your product’s carbon footprint with an ISO 14067 verification audit from SGS.

ISO 14067 specifies the principles, requirements and guidelines for quantifying and reporting the carbon footprint of a product (CFP) that are consistent with international life cycle assessment (LCA) standards, namely ISO 14040 and ISO 14044. The global standard is for partial CFP and applies to CFP studies, the results of which provide the basis for different applications.

ISO 14067 only addresses a single impact category – climate change. Carbon offsetting and communicating the CFP or partial CFP information are outside its scope. It does not assess any social, economic or other environmental aspects and impacts that potentially arise from a product’s life cycle.

We can help you achieve verification with an ISO 14067 audit, including a gap assessment and benchmarking. We will determine your competency and support you to achieve ongoing improvement.

What are the benefits of ISO 14067 verification?

Verification follows successful completion of an audit. The benefits include:
  • Reliable and comparable parameters for organizations and consumers
  • Improved efficiency across the value chain
  • Reduced emissions when implementing targeted measures
  • Transparent greenhouse gas (GHG) quantification and reporting
  • Help to implement other standards, such as ISO 14001 (environmental management systems)
  • Consistency with other standards, such as ISO 14025 (environmental labels) and ISO 14044, among others
  • Calculating your carbon footprint – the first step toward implementing an emissions reduction and offsetting strategy

Aligning with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

ISO 14067 contributes to UN Sustainable Development Goal 13 – Climate Action.

FAQs

ISO 14067 provides a standardized methodology for calculating the CFP, ensuring consistency and comparability between products and organizations. Assessing a product’s GHG emissions should include ISO 14040 and ISO 14044’s life cycle analysis techniques.

Crucially, using ISO 14067 to calculate the CFP can ensure that product life cycle analysis is complete and all relevant product information considered.

There are two complementary approaches. An iterative approach provides consistency in the results and refines them until the best results are obtained. A scientific approach includes, where possible, physical, chemical, biological and other information and data for product life cycle analysis.

Organizations must show that results are consistent, accurate and, if the outcome of the analysis is communicated externally, transparent, so interested third parties can be confident in the results.
