The Product Carbon Footprint (PCF) assesses the emissions associated with a product’s lifecycle, from extraction to disposal.

How does Product Carbon Footprint (PCF) work?

A PCF measures how much greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are associated with a product’s life cycle from extraction to disposal. 

What are the challenges to measuring a PCF?

Measuring product emissions involves hurdles like limited data available along the entire value chain and evolving methodologies.

Why opt for Product Carbon Footprint software?

A PCF solution can support supplier engagement for data collection and provide industry product emission benchmarks to overcome the challenges of PCF measurement.
