Brenntag, after review by the independent external party TÜV Rheinland, has received certification of the calculation method for its Product Carbon Footprint (PCF) data.
The certification confirms that the Brenntag’s PCF methodology approach meets the requirements of the internationally recognized standard ISO 14067:2018 and the Together for Sustainability (TfS) PCF Guideline.
At the end of 2022, the 47 member companies of the chemical industry initiative TfS agreed on a uniform global standard for calculating their PCFs. Brenntag calculates the PCF data according to that standard, considering the different stages of the supply chain
Andreas Kicherer, Ph.D., vice president, sustainability, Brenntag Group, commented: “Our concept of providing extensive product carbon footprint data for our product portfolio provides our customers highly valuable transparency into how much GHG emissions are associated with a product along its entire life cycle. And the TÜV Rheinland certification clearly underlines the credibility of our calculation procedure.”
