DataCross 2.0 – The competence for the procurement and calculation of real CO2 emissions

CO₂ balance as an essential part of the life cycle assessment

With the European Green Deal, the EU Commission has set the ambitious goal of making the EU the first climate-neutral continent. In line with this, national legislation such as the German Climate Protection Act calls for greenhouse gas neutrality by 2045. In order to achieve such ambitious targets, it is first and foremost up to politicians to enact appropriate legislation to limit harmful emissions.

Ultimately, however, the various industries must manage the transformation. Last but not least, increasing pressure from customers and investors is another important reason for evaluating and minimizing emissions. At the same time, more and more marketing departments are discovering the topic for themselves and are looking for reliable data and facts to score points with customers.

The calculation of a corporate carbon footprint (CCF) or a product carbon footprint (PCF) will therefore become essential in future for companies that want to remain future-proof on the market.

What needs to be done?

The increasing number and dynamics of legal regulations (Battery Directive, ELV, Ecodesign, etc.) and ambitious customer requirements are already calling for action today. Before companies can take appropriate measures in their processes to reduce emissions, comparative values must be created. The following five steps must be carried out to determine the necessary data and facts:

CO2 Footprint

How can tec4U-Solutions support you?

We work with you to create a reliable CCF or PCF, set reduction targets and introduce suitable measures. In addition, we support you in the sustainable monitoring of the agreed product adjustments and carry out regular effectiveness analyses. In doing so, we consider all three scopes of CO2 balancing:

Direct Emissions

Direct Emissions

Energy sources at the site
(natural gas, coolants, fuels …)

Indirect Emissions

Indirect Emissions

Purchased energy
(electricity, steam, district heating …)

Indirect Emissions Supply Chain
