Resource-efficient products and climate change

Through the calculation of greenhouse gas emissions (equivalent CO2 emissions) it has been demonstrated that products manufactured using recycled materials save on CO2 emissions in comparison with the equivalent products manufactured using raw materials.


Technical sheets is being drawn up on the carbon footprint

Using the methodology of the British Standards Institution (BSI) PAS 2050:2011, which sets out the guidelines for calculating and evaluating the carbon footprint of a product over the course of its life cycle, spanning design, manufacture, distribution and retail, a set of technical sheets is being drawn up on the carbon footprint of the products that won the Design for Recycling Award in 2009, 2011 and 2013.
