The birth of the new Carbon Footprint Standard for Products - What does it mean and how is it useful for New Zealand and Australia?
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”)
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”
What does the new standard mean for New Zealand’s and Australia’s industry? What are the critical details? How does is relate to other standards? Join Barbara Nebel from thinkstep Australasia and Sean Weaver from EKOS for a 30 “Straight of the Horse’s Mouth” webinar.
