2009-2009 Waste Agency of Catalonia (Autonomous Administration, environment): Carbon footprint of 12 products of the Xarxa Compra Reciclat, conducted by the UNESCO Chair of Life Cycle Assessment and Climate Change


The challenge of our client

One of the main objectives of the Xarxa Compra Reciclat of the Waste Agency of Catalonia  is to support the recycled, recyclable and / or biodegradable products promoting its purchase. A strategy for raising the visibility of these products and their manufacturers is to show the benefits of recycled products in relation to climate change. Communicating unequivocally these benefits is necessary in order to know the savings in emissions of greenhouse gases that these products may have compared to equivalent products that do not include this type of environmental criteria in their design process.
