Brenntag reports that the company is the first global chemical distribution company to align its semi-automatized PCF calculation tool with the rules of the Together for Sustainability initiative and ISO 14067: 2018. The company has taken an additional step forward regarding the service of making product carbon footprint (PCF) data available to business partners. An independent third party, TÜV Rheinland Energy, has certified the calculation method for Brenntag’s PCF data.

Brenntag has provided customers with comprehensive PCF data since December 2022. The unique PCF service called “CO2Xplorer” is part of Brenntag’s sustainability strategy to promote and enhance transparency about greenhouse gas emissions to drive reductions across the entire supply chain. After a systematic approach review by the independent external party TÜV Rheinland, a certification of the calculation method has been achieved. The certification confirms that the Brenntag’s PCF methodology approach meets the requirements of the internationally recognized standard ISO 14067:2018 and the Together for Sustainability (TfS) PCF Guideline.

Dr. Andreas Kicherer, vice president, Sustainability, Brenntag Group said, “Our concept of providing extensive product carbon footprint data for our product portfolio provides our customers highly valuable transparency into how much GHG emissions are associated with a product along its entire life cycle. And the TÜV Rheinland certification clearly underlines the credibility of our calculation procedure.”
