Corporate Carbon Footprint (CCF)
For companies, there are two different ways of looking at a greenhouse gas balance: The Corporate Carbon Footprint (CCF) as a company-related approach and the Product Carbon Footprint (PCF) as a product-related approach.
The CCF refers to the direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions along the entire value chain of a company within a certain period of time. It refers to the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases released directly into the atmosphere as a result of the company's activities. In addition, it also refers to the greenhouse gas emissions that are released indirectly as a result of the company's activities. This can include emissions generated by the company's use of energy, transportation, production, and waste products. The CCF is an essential component of a company's commitment to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions and thus contribute to climate protection. Using the CCF, companies can create a management tool to identify their emissions and gradually reduce them.
