What to Consider?
There are many activities that produce CO2, so it is important to clearly define the boundaries of the calculation. Firstly decide if your are calculating the business footprint, the product footprint or both.
For example you may include energy use, staff commuting and waste production and disposal; but will you also include CO2 produced by use of your product?
What Methods to Use?
There is a variety of guidance out there but the Carbon Trust (http://www.carbontrust.com) is a good place to start.
PAS2050 published by BSI is also worth a read: http://shop.bsigroup.com/en/Browse-By-S … AS-2050/
