Transparency on carbon footprints
A certified industry standard
Clariant’s «CliMate» tool provides product carbon footprints according to the ISO 14067 norm, the most commonly used standard for carbon footprints. The tool was developed by company experts with the support of industry specialist MIBCON and utilizes our existing greenhouse gas tracking tools. Customers can count on a tool that is comparable with the leading consensus on standards for PCF calculation tools, including the approach set out by Together for Sustainability for the chemical industry. Most importantly, «CliMate» was validated in 2022 by experts at the independent organization TÜV Rheinland in Germany.
Powerful information at your fingertips
Product carbon footprint calculators significantly reduce the time required to prepare and calculate carbon footprints for products in the portfolio. With a product carbon footprint, Clariant’s customers gain a clear picture of the cradle-to-gate greenhouse gas emissions associated with different finished products in the portfolio. The information provided by product carbon footprint calculations will also be used by Clariant for our supplier engagement efforts and to uncover improvement opportunities beyond our own operations.
A gateway to collaboration
Besides an active engagement with our suppliers, Clariant, as a member of the Together for Sustainability initiative, contributed to the development of a chemical industry guideline on product carbon footprints and corporate accounting for scope 3 emissions. The Together for Sustainability guideline harmonizes PCF calculation approaches across the industry and is applicable to the vast majority of chemical products.
