Environmental footprinting

There are two types of environmental footprint we perform:

  • Organisation Footprints, where annual operational inputs and outputs are converted to an environmental impact, typically greenhouse gas emissions (aka carbon fooprint)
  • Product Footprints where the inputs and outputs of a product over its life cycle are converted to one or more environmental impacts such as carbon, water, toxicity

Catalyst® Ltd has extensive experience in carrying out and reporting environmental footprints. We have capabilities in

  • Carbon footprint calculation and mitigation. We are approved consultants for carboNZero and CEMARS certification
  • Life Cycle Assessment. We are members of LCANZ and ALCAS and chair of the LCANZ technical working group
  • Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) via the Australasian EPD Programme
  • Developing tailor made environmental evaluation tools
  • The review and verifcation of all the above
