Many businesses and other organisations are now assessing the carbon impact of their products and services; the main drivers for this are equally important – namely supply chain pressure to disclose the emissions, but also a need to assess and manage down the carbon within their own production/operations to reduce costs and improve sustainability.

There is just a small charge for downloading factors, which can be purchased individually, saving considerable expense in comparison with purchasing entire databases of data (most of which you may not need).
