How to make climate footprint calculations as real as possible
In recent years, fighting climate change has become the most important sustainability issue for companies as well as nations. More and more companies are measuring and reporting their greenhouse gas emissions and, like Holmen, linking their sustainability targets to the Paris Agreement’s ambition to keep global warming below two degrees Celsius.
There are several frameworks to use for making these climate calculations, and most of them are based on, or aligned with, the GHG Protocol.
When companies measure and set their own GHG (greenhouse gas) emission targets, climate accounting becomes more transparent, consistent and comparable between organisations. Defining and looking into emissions created further up – or down – the value chain creates a sound foundation for companies that want to reduce their carbon footprint.
Both the Paper Profile and Carbon Footprint documentation provide input that you can use together with climate impact calculation tools, to get a better understanding of the CO2e emissions from your print or packaging paper products.
Dig down into some of the examples where carbon footprint has been calculated on print products such as books and magazines printed on our paper.
