Carbon footprint

The Carbon Footprint is an environmental index. It measures the impact that a product could have on the climate and on global warming.

This environmental index is useful in order to calculate the absorption and emission of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases during the whole life cycle of the product (LCA).

Thanks to the Carbon Footprint, the impact of a product on the environment can be analysed and compared to other products that belong to the same category. This process takes into consideration all steps concerning the whole life of a product from the extraction of raw materials and its production, from its utilization up to its disposal as waste.
