Tratos now holds the ISO 14067 accreditation for the carbon footprint.
The ISO 14067 is an accreditation developed by ISO to analyse companies’ carbon footprint. The standard builds on existing ISO standards for life cycle assessments (ISO 14040/44) and environmental labels and declarations (ISO 14025).
ISO decided to implement the standard following the fact that businesses, their customers and suppliers are becoming concerned with the environmental impact of the activities, products and services they offer and consume.
The ISO14067 specifies principles, requirements and guidelines for the quantification and communication of the carbon footprint of a product (CFP). The standard is based on International Standards on life cycle assessment (ISO 14040 and ISO 14044) for quantification and on environmental labels and declarations (ISO 14020, ISO 14024 and ISO 14025) for communication.
Tratos has a longstanding commitment to measuring and reducing the carbon footprint of its products. Before receiving the ISO 14067, the company has been partnering with AENOR to develop and build technology to measure, and so to manage, companies’ own individual carbon footprints. In the past few years, Tratos has also been working hard to develop a new strategy to measure and reduce its carbon emissions.
ISO builds its standards in order to achieve the sustainable development goals of the United Nations. The fact that Tratos has been given the ISO14067 accreditation exemplifies the company’s commitment to give a contribution to achieving those goals.
