Carbon footprint at item level

In our efforts to become a more sustainable surface treatment company, we have now completed the work of producing GHG calculations for all six units, which means that we can now measure and report the climate footprint per process and down to item level. The next step is to get the climate footprint on the quotes.

The carbon footprint has been calculated by converting all the climate impacts of the operations into CO2 equivalents, or carbon dioxide equivalents
The calculations cover all Proton Finishing processes, both upstream and downstream of the facilities. They also take into account energy sources and what the products emit in carbon dioxide before they reach us, as well as the climate impact at the end customer.
– “It feels really great that we can now report the climate footprint down to item level. Climate calculations are a bit tricky as there is not much to go on, but we have learnt a lot along the way that we will now build on, says Sandra Vatn – sustainability developer at Proton Finishing.
– “We notice that questions from our customers regarding climate footprint are increasing. Being able to show, directly at the time of offering, what climate footprint the process entails is a big step in our sustainability development and another step on our journey towards a more sustainable surface treatment, says Anders Olsson, Sales Manager at Proton Finishing

What is GHG?
