ISO/TS 14067:2013

Greenhouse gases -- Carbon footprint of products -- Requirements and guidelines for quantification and communication

ISO/TS 14067:2013 specifies principles, requirements and guidelines for the quantification and communication of the carbon footprint of a product (CFP), based on International Standards on life cycle assessment (ISO 14040 and ISO 14044) for quantification and on environmental labels and declarations (ISO 14020, ISO 14024 and ISO 14025) for communication.

Requirements and guidelines for the quantification and communication of a partial carbon footprint of a product (partial CFP) are also provided.

ISO/TS 14067:2013 is applicable to CFP studies and different options for CFP communication based on the results of such studies.

Where the results of a CFP study are reported according to ISO/TS 14067:2013, procedures are provided to support both transparency and credibility and also to allow for informed choices.

ISO/TS 14067:2013 also provides for the development of CFP-product category rules (CFP-PCR), or the adoption of product category rules (PCR) that have been developed in accordance with ISO 14025 and that are consistent with ISO/TS 14067:2013.

ISO/TS 14067:2013 addresses only one impact category: climate change.

Offsetting is outside of the scope of ISO/TS 14067:2013.
