PRINCIPLES
USE OF PRODUCT CATEGORY RULES
GUIDANCE ON COMMUNICATION
REQUIREMENTS AND PROCEDURES FOR COMMUNICATION OF CFP
– General (Declarations, Requirements for Declarations Directed to End
Consumers, Confidentiality, Units of measurement, Age of data)
– Declaring Overall Emissions
– Declaring emissions for specific stages of the life cycle
– Declarations making Comparisons
 VERIFICATION
 Annex (normative): The content of the CF-PCR document

Comparison of objectives/expectations (1)
PAS 2050
internal assessment of life cycle GHG emissions of products;
Facilitates evaluation of alternative product configurations;
Benchmark for programmes aimed at reducing GHG emissions;
Allows for comparison of goods and services;
Supports reporting on corporate responsibility;
Provides a common basis for reporting and communicating life cycle GHG
emissions;
Provides an opportunity for greater consumer understanding of life cycle
GHG emissions
WRI/WBCSD
Guidance for companies and other organizations to prepare an inventory of
emissions associated with a product;
Primary purpose to support public reporting of product life cycle GHG
emissions to help users reduce these emissions;
Public reporting refers to providing emissions-related information for a product,
in accordance with the reporting requirements specified under the standard;
Standard
 does not directly enable comparative assertions or product labeling;
 Is not intended to support the accounting of GHG emission offsets or

claims of carbon neutrality;
Comparison of objectives/expectations (2)
ISO
Benefits organizations, governments, project proponents and stakeholders by
providing clarity and consistency for quantifying, monitoring, reporting and
verifying the carbon footprint of products;
Part 1 specifies principles and requirements for studies to quantify Carbon
Footprint of Products (CFP), based on the method of life cycle assessment
(LCA);
Part 2 specifies
 requirements for the development of information to communicate the
carbon footprint of products, calculated according to Part 1 of ISO 14067;
 Guidelines how to use such information on the CFP;

Harmonization
 Harmonization: common goal for PAS2050,
WRI/WBCSD & ISO
 Focus on requirements
 Also relevant: principles; terms & definitions;
verification
 Means of harmonization
 Limits of harmonization
 Added value of more than one approach
ISOCS ID 15455229
14
Role of CFP
 Refers to the calculation of the amount of GHG
emissions associated with a company, event, activity,
or the lifecycle of a good/service,
 Enables to ascertain and manage GHG emissions
along the supply chain
 Safeguards the survival of companies in the changing
regulatory and economic business landscape
 Furthers the understanding of the risks and
opportunities in the supply chain
 Allows to focus effort in response to new regulatory,
shareholder and consumer pressures
ISOCS ID 15455229
15
Challenges - CFP
 Basic challenge:
– right balance between practicality – environmental
integrity/credibility
– Role of PCRs
– Timing
 Harmonization WRI/WBCSD – PAS2050 – ISO 14067
– Common basis: Life Cycle Assessment (ISO 14040)
– ISO: also ISO 14020 (labelling) and ISO 14064
(verification)

Vision and realities
 Transition to a zero/low-carbon society implies
that the CFP of all products and services have to
be managed
 Economic crises offers a unique opportunity to
restructure the supply chains of products
 Bottom-up efforts along supply chains
complement top-down efforts at national and
international level
 Reducing the risks of climate change may require
negative global GHG emissions after 2050
