What is a Carbon Footprint?

A carbon footprint (CF) – also named carbon profile - is the overall amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions (e.g. methane, laughing gas, etc.) associated with a product. A carbon footprint comprises the entire supply chain, sometimes including the use and recycling or the disposal of the product.

Causes of greenhoue gas emissions are, for example, electricity production in power plants, heating with fossil fuels, transport operations and other industrial and agricultural processes.

A carbon footprint is quantified using indicators such as the Global Warming Potential (GWP). As defined by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), a GWP is an indicator that reflects the relative effect of a greenhouse gas in terms of climate change considering a fixed time period, such as 100 years (GWP100). The GWPs for different emissions can then be added together to deliver one single indicator that expresses the overall contribution to climate change of these emissions.
