THE CARBON FOOTPRINT OF SINGLE PROCESSES
A carbon footprint measures the impact of human activities on the global climate, in terms of the quantity of greenhouse gases produced during a product’s life cycle, from the creation and extraction of raw materials, through to production, packaging and distribution, followed by the disposal and breakdown of packaging once the product has been used or consumed.
For Sammontana, the carbon footprint is an excellent tool that allows us to accurately gauge the true level of sustainability of our products. It enables us to quantify the effect objectively by measuring the CO2 equivalent that is produced during each phase of a product’s life cycle and thus contributes to the greenhouse effect.
