Doc. 167/11 Methodology to establish a "Product Carbon Footprint"

"EIGA members are receiving more and more requests for the "carbon footprint" of their products.

This document presents the basis of a methodology for EIGA members to calculate a "product carbon footprint" that is applicable to industrial gases products, and guidelines on how to communicate this information to stakeholders.

This document proposes the methodology, sources of emission factors and the scope and borders to be considered and applied by EIGA members when calculating a carbon footprint for products.

These principals are based on and have been developed from currently established national and international standard methodologies."
