How climate-friendly is your company? Take the first step on your way to certification as a "climate neutral company" with "Corporate Carbon Footprint" certification. Established as a measure of the environmental impact in the climate debate, the carbon footprint is an important part of holistic environmental assessments. It measures all greenhouse gases that occur along the value chain in your company.
TÜV Rheinland provides ISO 14064-compliant carbon footprint services, which help your enterprise learn more about the conditions of, and possible liabilities and risks associated with your GHG emissions. Carbon footprint assessment allows your company to demonstrate its corporate social responsibility (CSR) and promote sustainable low-carbon development.

More and more companies are choosing their suppliers based on the CO2 emissions or provide incentive programs to reward carbon footprint assessment. Furthermore, the corporate footprint forms the basis for certification as a climate-neutral company and allows companies to participate in international initiatives that publish or determine levels of CO2 emissions.
