Maksims Feofilovs, Francesco Romagnoli

Description of the Technology

The carbon footprint (CO2 eq.) evaluation tool can be developed for products to evaluate the environmental impacts created from the acquisition of raw materials to the disposal of the product, and will also include the possibility of making assumptions about product transportation distances and their impacts. The tool is built on the basis of internationally accepted and standardized scientific methodology "Life cycle assessment" in accordance with ISO 14040:2006 and ISO 14044:2006 standards and information about the environmental impacts of products and processes from the world's largest environmental impact databases.


A carbon footprint assessment tool for a company's range of products can be used to inform the consumer about the product's impact on climate change and guide the consumer to make better choices.


 The benefits of the service include the development of a personalized tool for a specific range of products and transportation scenarios of the company's choice.
