Introduction

Climate change arising from anthropogenic activity has been identified as one of the greatest challenges

facing countries, governments, business and individuals, with major implications for both human and

natural systems. In response, international, regional, national and local initiatives are being developed and

implemented to limit greenhouse gas (GHG) concentrations in the Earth’s atmosphere. Such GHG initiatives

rely on the assessment, monitoring, reporting and verification of GHG emissions and/or removals.

GHGs are emitted and removed throughout the life cycle of a product (i.e. cradle-to-grave) from raw

material acquisition through production, use and end-of-life treatment.

This Technical Specification details principles, requirements and guidelines for the quantification and

communication of the carbon footprint of products (CFPs), including both goods and services, based

on GHG emissions and removals over the life cycle of a product. Requirements and guidelines for the

quantification and communication of a partial carbon footprint of products (partial CFP) are also

provided. The communication of the CFP to the intended audience is based on a CFP study report that

provides an accurate, relevant and fair representation of the CFP.

This Technical Specification is based on existing International Standards ISO 14020, ISO 14024,

ISO 14025, ISO 14040 and ISO 14044 and aims to set specific requirements for the quantification and

communication of a CFP, including additional requirements where the CFP information is intended to be

publicly available.

This Technical Specification is expected to benefit organizations, governments, communities and

other interested parties by providing clarity and consistency in quantifying and communicating CFPs.

Specifically, using life cycle assessment according to this Technical Specification with climate change as

the single impact category may offer benefits through:
— providing requirements for the methods to be adopted in assessing the CFP;
— facilitating the tracking of performance in reducing GHG emissions;

— assisting in the creation of efficient and consistent procedures to provide CFP information to

interested parties;

— providing a better understanding of the CFP such that opportunities for GHG reductions may be

identified;

— providing CFP information to encourage changes in consumer behaviour which could contribute to

reductions in GHG emissions through improved purchasing, use and end-of-life decisions;

— providing correct and consistent communication of CFPs which supports comparability of products

in a free and open market;

— enhancing the credibility, consistency and transparency of the quantification, reporting and

communication of the CFP;

— facilitating the evaluation of alternative product design and sourcing options, production and

manufacturing methods, raw material choices, recycling and other end-of-life processes;

— facilitating the development and implementation of GHG management strategies and plans across

product life cycles as well as the detection of additional efficiencies in the supply chain;

CFPs prepared in accordance with this Technical Specification contribute to the objectives of GHG

related policies and/or regimes.

1) As the subject on quantification and communication of a carbon footprint of products is still under development,

the agreement to publish an International Standard could not be reached and ISO/TC 207/SC 7 decided that the

publication of a Technical Specification (according to the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1) is appropriate.

ISO/TS 14067:2013(E)

An organization may wish to publicly communicate a CFP for many reasons which may include:

— providing information to consumers and others for decision-making purposes;

— enhancing climate change awareness and consumer engagement on environmental issues;

— supporting an organization’s commitment to tackling climate change;
— supporting implementation of policies on climate change management.

The requirements for communication provided in this Technical Specification vary with the option

chosen for the CFP communication and the intended target group.

Figure 1 shows how CFP quantification is linked to CFP communication in this Technical Specification.

The specific linkage depends on the choice of different options with respect to communication and

verification. The structure of this Technical Specification corresponds to the flow as presented in Figure 1.

This Technical Specification addresses the single impact category of climate change. It does not assess

any social or economic aspects or impacts or any other potential environmental aspects and related

impacts arising from the life cycle of a product. Therefore a CFP assessed in accordance with this

Technical Specification does not provide an indicator of any social or economic impact or the overall

environmental impact of a product. Information on limitations of the CFPs based on this Technical

Specification is included in Clause 4 and Annex B.

Greenhouse gases — Carbon footprint of products —
Requirements and guidelines for quantification and
communication
1 Scope

This Technical Specification specifies principles, requirements and guidelines for the quantification and

communication of the carbon footprint of a product (CFP), based on International Standards on life cycle

assessment (ISO 14040 and ISO 14044) for quantification and on environmental labels and declarations

(ISO 14020, ISO 14024 and ISO 14025) for communication.

Requirements and guidelines for the quantification and communication of a partial carbon footprint of

a product (partial CFP) are also provided.

This Technical Specification is applicable to CFP studies and different options for CFP communication

based on the results of such studies.

Where the results of a CFP study are reported according to this Technical Specification, procedures are

provided to support both transparency and credibility and also to allow for informed choices.

This Technical Specification also provides for the development of CFP-product category rules (CFP-PCR),

or the adoption of product category rules (PCR) that have been developed in accordance with ISO 14025

and that are consistent with this Technical Specification.
This Technical Specification addresses only one impact category: climate change.
Offsetting is outside of the scope of this Technical Specification.
