Product footprinting

Major retailers and brand owners are adding carbon labels to their products to allow consumers make a low carbon choice based on their product's carbon footprint. Product footprinting offers a unique view of a product and quantifies the life cycle emissions from the growing of the raw material through to disposal and recycling of the end product. Recent developments in standards and tools have made the calculation process easier.
