Our Carbon Footprint

What is a carbon footprint in relation to Arjowiggins Graphic?

Carbon footprint is a measure of the impact human activities have on the environment in terms of the amount of greenhouse gases emitted, (measured in units of carbon dioxide equivalent).

Why is measuring your carbon footprint important?

Arjowiggins Graphic calculates its carbon footprint for two main reasons: to assist customers in estimating their own carbon footprint and to monitor the greenhouse gas emissions as a result of our production processes.

How is the Arjowiggins Graphic carbon footprint calculated?

Carbon footprint calculations are not regulated on a global or national basis and this is why Arjowiggins Graphic have selected independent and long established companies to undertake its calculations: Labelia Conseil evaluates Carbon footprint data in accordance with the Bilan Carbone® methodology.

What is the Bilan Carbone® method of carbon footprint calculation?

This is a well agreed methodology, based on the international Greenhouse Gaz Protocol, for a consistent method of measuring, reporting and communicating the greenhouse gas emissions (carbon footprint) of goods or services across their lifecycle developed.

Bilan Carbone® has been recognised by the British Standards Institute (BSI).

The coverage of carbon footprint calculations:

Our boundaries considered for analysis include the whole production process i.e. from the raw materials to the delivery of finished products. Always check the carbon footprint coverage before comparison to be confident that all the relevant and potential sources of CO2 have been covered.
