What Is It ?

CARBON FOOTPRINT :

CARBON FOOTPRINT Carbon management defines the process of carbon footprint as "A measure of the total amount of carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) and methane(CH 4 ) emissions of a defined population, system or activity, considering all relevant sources, sinks and storage within the spatial and temporal boundary of the population, system or activity of interest. Calculated as carbon dioxide equivalent (CO 2 e) using the relevant 100-year global warming potential(GWP100)."

HISTORY:

HISTORY The concept name of the carbon footprint originates from ecological footprint, discussion, which was developed by Rees and Wackernagel in the 1990s which estimates the number of "earths" that would theoretically be required if everyone on the planet consumed resources at the same level as the person calculating their ecological footprint

CARBON FOOTPRINT OF PRODUCTS:

CARBON FOOTPRINT OF PRODUCTS Measuring carbon footprint of a product using the latest technology (that is PAS 2050) is called carbon footprint of product. In this method we actually measure the whole amount of green house gases released by a product in its whole lifetime.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Measuring the carbon footprint of products across their full life cycle is a powerful way for companies to collect the information they need to: Reduce GHG emissions Identify cost savings opportunities Incorporate emissions impact into decision making on suppliers, materials, product design, manufacturing processes, etc.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Demonstrate environmental/corporate responsibility leadership Meet customer demands for information on product carbon footprints. •Differentiate and meet demands from ‘green’ consumers.

PowerPoint Presentation:

For customers (if companies choose to communicate their product footprints), it provides: Confidence that the life cycle GHG emissions being reported for products are based on a standardised, robust method Greater understanding of how their purchasing decisions impact GHG emissions

PROCESS :

PROCESS Build process map of product’s life cycle, from raw materials to disposal, including all material, energy and waste flows Confirm boundaries and perform high-level footprint calculation to help prioritise efforts Collect data on material amounts, activities and emission factors across all life cycle stages Calculate the product carbon footprint Assess precision of the footprint analysis

PowerPoint Presentation:

The next step is validating results. The next step is mitigating effects of excess of emission and reduction of carbon emission. And the last step is commuting and claiming reductions.

CF OF SOME PRODUCTS:

CF OF SOME PRODUCTS Pound of beef- 15lbs of CO2 A cheese burger- 7-14lbs of CO2 A mid-size Toyota sedan- 97000 pounds of CO2 1 gallon of milk – 7.2 pounds of CO2 1 jacket- 66pounds of CO2

SIMPLE STEPS TO REDUCE CARBON FOOTPRINT :

SIMPLE STEPS TO REDUCE CARBON FOOTPRINT Using renewable sources of energy like solar power. When buying appliances go for those with energy efficiency labels. Locate the fridge where air can circulate around the coils at the back in a cool spot away from the oven or the sun. This can save up to 150 kilograms of greenhouse gas each year

SIMPLE STEPS TO REDUCE CARBON FOOTPRINT :

SIMPLE STEPS TO REDUCE CARBON FOOTPRINT If you are leaving your desk for more than 20 minutes, turn off your computer monitor. Laptops are more efficient in terms of electricity use than desktops. Join a car pool network . Look for the labels to help you choose food that has been produced with the aim of reducing the negative impact on wildlife and the environment.

SIMPLE STEPS TO REDUCE CARBON FOOTPRINT :

SIMPLE STEPS TO REDUCE CARBON FOOTPRINT Think about what you are buying by taking a shopping list when you go shopping to minimise wastage and leftovers. Throwing less food away produces less methane and reduces other harmful environmental impacts from producing, packaging and transporting food. Buy recycled products.

CARBON OFFSETING:

CARBON OFFSETING The mitigation of carbon footprints through the development of alternative projects, such as solar or wind energy or reforestation, represents one way of reducing a carbon footprint and is often known as Carbon offsetting. A carbon offset is a reduction in emissions of carbon dioxide or greenhouse gases made in order to compensate for or to offset an emission made elsewhere.

IMPACT:

IMPACT With the growing awareness about carbon footprints consumer have turned towards eco-friendly products. Consumers in countries like USA and UK have become highly aware about ecological products and prefer buying these products so that they can contribute their little to save the environment.

IMPACT:

IMPACT This process also serves as an advantage to manufacturers as they can save their resources and money by better and fuller utilization of their resources. Government as well as entrepreneurs in different countries have started promoting and investing money in renewable sources of energy. This further cuts down their carbon footprints.

AMAZING FACTS :

AMAZING FACTS The biggest single contributor to global warming is meat and the meat industry. Thus, the easiest thing you can do to stop global warming is to simply reduce the amount of meat you eat. Every single meal you skip the ham in your sandwich will help save the world!!!! You save massive amounts of water – 3,000 to 5,000 gallons of water for every pound of beef you don't eat!! On a global scale, consumption of food accounts for 20 percent of the world's carbon footprint, followed closely by the operation and maintenance of residences at 19 percent. Buying food from local markets and utilizing renewable energy can greatly reduce your personal carbon footprint!!!

CASE STUDY ON COCA-COLA:

CASE STUDY ON COCA-COLA In 2007, Coca-Cola began working in partnership with the Carbon Trust to calculate the carbon footprint of some of its most popular products in Great Britain. In March 2009, the carbon footprint of four brands (Coca-Cola , Diet Coke, Coke Zero and Oasis Summer Fruits) was published. Coca-Cola is now using the CarbonTrust’s Footprint Expert tool to extend this work to a further 36 products in 2011. Coca-Cola has launched Trace Your Coke, a new online tool to help consumers understand the journey and carbon footprint of some of its most popular products. In the study of coke’s carbon footprint it was highlighted that:

CASE STUDY ON COCA-COLA:

CASE STUDY ON COCA-COLA • Packaging is responsible for between 30 to 70 percent of a soft drink’s carbon footprint. • The carbon footprint of soft drinks can be reduced by using more recycled content in primary packaging and by reducing the weight of primary packaging. • Recycling a bottle or can will reduce the carbon footprint of the individual product by up to 40% and make a major difference to the environmental footprint of the product. Coca-Cola used the work to inform its corporate responsibility and sustainability (CRS) strategy and decision making related to packaging design, new product development and recycling. Specifically, Coca-Cola has taken these steps to reduce its carbon footprint:

CASE STUDY ON COCA-COLA:

CASE STUDY ON COCA-COLA • Introduced a new glass bottle design which reduces carbon emissions by up to 2,200 tonnes per year in Great Britain. •Worked in partnership with WRAP and Beverage Can Makers Europe (BCME) to set a new standard and launch a new design for 300ml aluminium cans which will save approximately 78,000 tonnes of CO2 each year. •Ensured that carbon footprint measurement and reduction is now a part of its packaging design and new product development process. • Engaged employees at Coca-Cola Enterprises on the topic of carbon emissions by running a 4-week employee Carbon Challenge in partnership with The Carbon Trust. As part of the project, CCE employees tracked and aimed to reduce their own personal carbon emissions for a month. Participants were invited to share their carbon reduction experiences online with other CCE employees.

CASE STUDY ON COCA-COLA:

CASE STUDY ON COCA-COLA • Launched a comprehensive programme of work to encourage consumers to recycle their products. This work has included: −a consumer advertising campaign in Great Britain. −a partnership with WRAP and RECOUP to establish 120 on-the-go Recycle Zones by the end of 2011. Recycle Zones are located in busy places like shopping centres, sports arena, airports and universities. • Launched a joint venture with ECO Plastics to develop a new purpose- built recycling facility in Lincolnshire. This initiative will mark a step change in the GB plastic reprocessing industry and will more than double the amount of high-quality rPET (PET that is recycled to make food-grade, sustainable packaging) currently produced in Great Britain. The state-of-the-art plastics reprocessing plant will supply CCE with enough GB-sourced, high-quality rPET to help CCE achieve its target of including 25% recycled PET in all its plastic packaging in Great Britain by 2012.
