This event was held on 25th November 2008 - chaired by Ed Holden, chief editor of Manufacturing & Logistics IT with a panel of experts from the Carbon Trust, Accenture and ILOG.
Product Carbon Footprinting is coming, and will gradually proliferate across market sectors and countries.
To be successful it needs:
- One commonly agreed methodology, upon which footprints are calculated
- One commonly agreed communications method, to provide comparable information
- One commonly agreed certification method, to ensure maximum consistency
- One commonly agreed education program, to repetitively promote understanding
What are we doing to ensure this becomes reality?
How does this provide the foundations to a successful progressive roll-out at scale?
How are costs continually reduced whilst maintaining quality assurance, when products are footprinted at scale?
What should you be doing now?
