While BASF is continuously working to achieve net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050, more and more of their customers are considering environmental aspects in the purchasing decisions. To meet this growing demand for carbon transparency, BASF is calculating the cradle-to-gate Product Carbon Footprints (PCFs) for the entire global portfolio.
A major share of BASF’s carbon emissions originates from the purchased goods and raw materials (Scope 3). That’s why BASF is requesting its suppliers to provide carbon footprints of their products, calculated using a standardized methodology aligned with ISO14067.
As a trusted long-term BASF partner in the sustainability area, Sphera’s Sustainability experts are happy to support BASF’s suppliers in calculating their PCFs in a transparent, efficient and cost-effective way.
For more than 30 years, Sphera has helped companies conduct PCFs and advance their product sustainability initiatives by providing:
- Deep knowledge and insights on PCF methodology
- Understanding of sector-specific requirements and needs
- Reliable, industry-based and annually updated Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) data
- Powerful software solutions for conducting LCAs and PCFs
- Local presence in different regions such as North America, Europa, and Asia
We look forward to supporting you!
