The main source of Jungbunzlauer’s GHG emissions is our product manufacturing process. Our production process requires water and energy, which generates direct (scope 1) and indirect (scope 2) emissions1). In order to keep track of our emissions and our efforts to reduce GHG emissions, and to determine, evaluate and communicate the carbon footprint of our products, we committed ourselves to performing a regular assessment of our scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions2). Since 2014, we have calculated our Corporate Carbon Footprint (CCF) on an annual basis. In addition, we regularly assess the individual Product Carbon Footprints (PCFs) of our seven major product groups in order to gain an in-depth understanding of the specific emissions related to each product. These PCFs have been assessed every 5 years between 2003 and 2013. The assessment rate has been increased to 3 years, in order to monitor the emissions of our individual products more accurately. All our carbon footprint calculations are performed in accordance with ISO standard 14040/44, based on secondary data from Ecoinvent V2.2 and externally verified by “myclimate”, an independent non-profit organisation with extensive expertise in lifecycle assessments.
