Emission data for purchased products are the basis of carbon footprint calculations for manufactured products. You can maintain this emission data in the Manage Purchased Product Footprints app. The categorization of emission data is based on the standards of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol.
Additional information about the Greenhouse Gas Protocol: The Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHGP) is a widely used standard to categorize emissions. It establishes a comprehensive, global, standardized framework for measuring and managing emissions from private and public sector operations, value chains, products, cities, and policies.
The GHGP is a partnership between the World Resource Institute (WRI) (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Resources_Institute) and the Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD)(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Business_Council_for_Sustainable_Development). It provides accounting and reporting standards, sector guidance, calculation tools, and training for businesses and government.
