SGS is Accredited for UNI EN ISO 14067 Greenhouse Gases – Carbon Footprint of Products
SGS has been accredited by Accredia, Italy’s national accreditation body, to deliver services in relation to the UNI EN ISO 14067 standard for Greenhouse Gases (GHG) – Carbon Footprint of Products (CFP) – Requirements & Guidelines for Quantification.
Accreditation means SGS can now audit and certify the carbon footprint of an organization’s services and products, as calculated using a model (developed in accordance with ISO 14040 and ISO 14044) that estimates their impact in terms of GHG emissions and sinks across their live cycle.
CFP allows organizations to:
- Identify the most significant sources of emission for any process/product
- Identify areas for intervention – in terms of emission reduction
- Increase visibility and consequently increase competitiveness
- Reply to client requests
About CFP & ISO 14067:2018
ISO 14067:2018 is the reference standard for CFP; it defines the principles, requirements and guidelines for quantifying a product’s carbon footprint. The standard requires an organization to produce a CFP study report based on an analysis of a product’s life cycle through the life cycle assessment methodologies of ISO 14040 and ISO 14044.
External communication related to carbon footprints is regulated by ISO 14026 – Environmental labels and declarations – principles, requirements and guidelines for communication of footprint information.
