Three new partners for PCF Pilot Project

07/21/2008 - The Pilot Project "Product Carbon Footprint" Germany presents three new corporate partners from the wholesale, retail and chemicals sectors. DSM, REWE Group and the Tengelmann Group join the project to measure greenhouse gas emissions for selected products.

In the first project of its kind in Germany, nine businesses have come together to measure the emissions of CO2 and other greenhouse gases related to selected products and services – the Product Carbon Footprint, or so called PCF. Overseen by WWF, the Öko-Institut (Institute for Applied Ecology), the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, and THEMA1, the Project will also work towards an international standard methodology for PCF measurement. Furthermore the Project will explore the possibility of communicating PCF to customers and end users, taking into account recent developments in other markets.
