HOW THE CARBON FOOTPRINT IS CALCULATED

The Carbon Footprint is the calculation of the total greenhouse gases emitted by an individual, organization or product, directly or indirectly.

The carbon footprint is thus configured as a basic reference point for the initiation of actions to reduce CO2 emissions and for the use of resources and materials with better environmental performance.

At Euro-Funding, in addition to calculating and registering the Carbon Footprint, we offer the possibility of carrying out a Life Cycle Analysis of the company’s products and we provide support in eco-design. This is something that is booming due to the current time of continuous change towards a low carbon and more environmentally friendly economy.

How the carbon footprint is calculated

Shall we talk about calculating your carbon footprint?

Calculating the carbon footprint of an organization involves a detailed analysis of the activity it carries out, varying its complexity based on the number of GHG emission sources considered for the calculation.

TYPES OF EMISSIONS ASSOCIATED WITH AN ORGANIZATION’S OPERATIONS

  • Direct GHGs: are emissions from sources that are owned or controlled by the organization.
  • Indirect GHG: are emissions resulting from the organization’s activities,
    and that occur at sources owned or controlled by another organization.

BENEFITS OF CARBON FOOTPRINT CALCULATION

  • Reduce the costs of energy consumption for lighting, air conditioning, heating and transport
  • Contribute to the reduction of GHG emissions and to greater environmental awareness
  • Positive variable for public procurement
  • Access to public grants, for the implementation of measures to reduce GHG emissions in the industrial, tertiary and residential sectors

EURO-FUNDING HAS RECORDED ITS CARBON FOOTPRINT

At Euro-Funding we are aware of the importance of the fight against climate change, so in addition to calculating the carbon footprint of our clients we have calculated ours for the years 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017, obtaining a downward trend in emissions in our fourth year (2017). This has allowed us to reflect in the stamp the shading of “CALCULATION” and “REDUCTION”.
