Step 1
Carbon footprint icon

Carbon footprints

A product carbon footprint (PCF) provides information about the impact of a product on global warming through its associated emissions. These carbon footprints take into account the materials and energy that go into different phases of a product's life cycle, such as the extraction of raw materials that make up the product, production processes, transportation, and other supporting processes.

This carbon footprint calculation was completed in February 2022

Carbon footprint (in CO₂ equivalents):

35 Kg CO₂

for 1 product of 0.5 L

This carbon footprint is based on the following product life cycle:

CRADLE TO CUSTOMER PLUS AND END OF LIFE

Cradle-to-customer plus end-of-life

The following emissions were taken into account in the life cycle stages of the product:
  • Extraction and pre-processing of raw materials and packaging
  • Transportation from supplier to manufacturer
  • Production of the final product
  • Delivery of the product to the first customer
  • Disposal processes for the product and its packaging
Step 2
reduction targets icon

Reduction targets

Reduction targets are an essential part of a company's climate action strategy. By setting concrete targets, companies define the areas, scope, and timeframe for implementing reduction measures.*

Scope 1 and 2 emissions

Scope 1 emissions include all emissions that are either directly generated by the company or under direct control of the company, for example fuel for company cars. Scope 2 emissions are indirect emissions generated by purchased energy, such as electricity.

This company has committed to reducing its emissions by

4.2%

Time period

2021 to 2026

Science-based target

Yes, matching the 1.5 °C ambition level

Scope 3 emissions

Scope 3 emissions come from all company activities that are not directly under its control, for example, employee commuting and business travel, as well as activities that occur throughout the company's value chain.

7%

Metric tonnes CO₂e per unit revenue

Time period

2021 to 2026

Science-based target

Yes, matching the well below 2 °C ambition level

Scope 3 emissions included in this reduction target:

Business travel
Downstream transportation and distribution
Employee commuting
End-of-life treatment of sold products
Fuel- and energy-related activities not included in scope 1 or scope 2
Purchased goods and services
Upstream transportation and distribution
Waste generated in operations

Reduction Measures Icon

Reduction measures

To meet their reduction targets, it is important for companies to plan and implement concrete measures to achieve effective climate action. This section shows you the reduction measures that have been implemented.*

Product-related reduction measures

This section shows you the reduction measures that were implemented for the ClimatePartner certified product or group of products.

Green electricity

75% of the electricity used to produce the packaging is green electricity.

Green electricity

100% of the electricity used in the production process is green electricity.

check icon

Electric or hydrogen vehicles

Vehicles using alternatives to fossil fuel powered combustion engines (hydrogen, electricity, etc.) are used to distribute over 40% of the products.

check icon

Recyclability

The product and/or packaging have been designed to ensure recyclability after disposal. 80% of the packaging or product is recyclable.

Company-related reduction measures

This section shows you the reduction measures that the company has implemented throughout their operations.

Step 4
Impact contribution icon

Climate projects

This company financially contributes to certified climate projects for a specific amount of emissions. The projects are regularly audited by independent third parties, and contribute to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Number of projects supported:

3

Climate projects were financed for the following amount of emissions:

35,000 Kg CO₂ *

* The amount of GHG emissions shown for the financial contribution to climate projects (step 4) may be different from the total carbon footprint (step 1). Differences may result from an allocation of GHG emissions between multiple certifications for the same company (e. g. certification of the company as well as certain products). Also, companies may source products or services for which a financial contribution has already been made via a third party, which results in a lower financial contribution via ClimatePartner.
