Carbon footprinting

Most companies have more influence over greenhouse gas emissions than they think. SimaPro provides you with everything you need to calculate your company’s carbon footprint and respond to what’s probably the most important environmental issue at this moment.

Find practical ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions

Carbon footprinting is the first step to getting insight into all greenhouse gas emissions in the life cycles of your company’s products. Reporting your greenhouse gas emissions and setting reduction targets can be a great way to drive additional business value. SimaPro’s carbon footprinting features identify hotspot and reduction opportunities, which can help your company open up more transparent communication and cooperation with suppliers and users.

SimaPro makes carbon footprinting easier

Doing a carbon footprint analysis requires expert knowledge and specialised software. SimaPro enables you to more easily calculate carbon footprints. It includes a large amount of background data and carbon dioxide equivalence factors for many greenhouse gas emissions. As several standards require, SimaPro allows for separate reporting of various types of greenhouse gas emissions, such as biogenic methane and emissions related to land-use change. With the grouping analysis feature, you can group activities, for example by business function or department, making it transparent what the various business functions or departments can do to reduce your overall carbon footprint.

"We have been using SimaPro for over a decade now. Currently as a server application, which is much more convenient when you have several users. We often need to go deep into the inventory to see where specific impacts come from, with SimaPro this is possible. Also working with parameters makes SimaPro extra valuable."
