Product Carbon Footprint (PCF) and Corporate Carbon Footprint (CCF)
Let's take a closer look at this topic: In order to be able to offset emissions at all, companies draw up a greenhouse gas balance sheet. This balance is divided into two parts. First, the Corporate Carbon Footprint (CCF) is determined. This exclusively highlights the company and its emissions (e.g. electricity consumption, employees' journeys to work by bus and train, etc.). Companies that produce or trade in physical goods (such as greenbox) also have a Product Carbon Footprint (PCF). This balance refers to our entire product range and thus to each individual product. This includes all stages of production: from materials to manufacturing to transport routes.
For comparison: the share of our PCF is 99.6 percent, the CCF is only 0.4 percent of the total balance. The manufacture of our products therefore causes the most emissions by far. Some companies only offset their CCF and still advertise with the terms "climate neutral" or "CO2-compensated". Only when you take a closer look do you realise how small the share is.
That is why we offset all CO2 emissions in production, transport, companies and resources - i.e. our CCF and PCF - with full conviction. With the composition of CCF and PCF, we achieve our goal of a 100 percent CO2-compensated company. Not because we have to, but because we want to actively contribute to climate protection. For a sustainable future of our green planet.
