Helbling - Scope 3 GHG emissions and Environmental Product Declerations (EPD)

We offer a comprehensive service that helps companies assess and manage their Scope 3 greenhouse gas emissions and create Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs).

Scope 3 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions – as defined by the Greenhouse Gas Protocol – are indirect emissions that occur in a value chain of a company, not from sources they directly own or control. They include both upstream activities like the production of purchased materials, and downstream activities like the disposal of sold products. Often representing the largest source of the emissions of a company, they are typically the hardest to control and to evaluate. An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is a standardized report communicating the environmental impact of a product, based on Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). It is a transparent way to share data about aspects such as carbon footprint, water use, and waste generation. EPDs are globally recognized and used in sustainable procurement, assisting businesses in making eco-friendly choices. These declarations adhere to the International Standard ISO 14025, which governs the creation and dissemination of such environmental declarations. Both Scope 3 emissions evaluation (activity-based) and the generation of environmental data for EPDs requires to identify the right granularity in the data collection and environmental impact modeling. Thanks to its combined competences in business operation, production, product development, and environmental impact assessment, Helbling can tailor resource-effective approaches for generating meaningful Scope 3 emissions and EPD data.
