The first comprehensive calculator to measure the carbon footprint, environmental footprint and circularity indicators of organisations, products and services launched

The first web tool is now available to calculate the carbon footprint, environmental footprint, and a series of circular economy indicators from an organisation approach, along with the simplified life cycle assessment and carbon footprint from a product and services approach; while all using the same baseline information. It has been created by Ihobe, the environmental management agency of the Basque Government.    

The tool draws on the expertise on the integrated calculation of organisation and product metrics generated by Ihobe over the last 10 years, thanks to the work of the Basque Ecodesign Center, the most important ecodesign and circular economy public-private partnership in Spain.

 Its design allows environmental assessments to be conducted both from an organisation and product & services approach.  Access to the tool is through the Ihobe website and is free for Basque companies.

The calculations are based on proven methodologies such as the UNE-EN ISO 14064-1:2019 and UNE-EN ISO 14067:2019 standards in the case of the carbon footprint; UNE-EN ISO 14040:2006 and UNE-EN ISO 14044:2006 for the environmental footprint and life cycle assessment; and the circular economy indicators are calculated as per the “Circular Transition Indicators 3.0” methodology, which are compatible with the future ISO 59020 to measure and assess circularity.

The Climate&Circularity Calculator is designed to provide organisations – particularly SMEs – with an assessment and monitoring tool to improve their environmental performance from a life cycle perspective; it can also be used for ecodesign simulations. That is a particularly important in the current climate, both in order to comply with ever more demanding legislation – such as the timeline to become carbon neutral no later than 2050 established by the recently passed Basque Energy Transition and Climate Change Act 1/2024 – and to convert good environmental performance into a competitiveness factor on the market.
