The RISE institutes Innventia, SP and Swedish ICT have merged in order to become a stronger research and innovation partner for businesses and society.
During 2017 will be one of several websites within RISE. Please visit for more information about RISE.

Carbon footprint

The climate question is one of the most important issues of our time. An initial step towards understanding and dealing with the impact a product or a business' operations have on climate change involves quantifying emissions of greenhouse gases – in other words, the size of a business' carbon footprint.

Where should you implement actions?

A carbon footprint is a measure of the emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases generated by a product or activity. Innventia has the knowledge and tools to calculate a carbon footprint. An analysis provides information about the impact various processes and activities have on the greenhouse effect and where it is most important to take action.

One tool used to calculate the climate impact of a product or service is a life cycle assessment (LCA), in which climate impact is one of the results. The results of the LCA can be used to develop strategies to reduce the product's climate impact.
