Global decarbonization goals:

By 2030. Countries must reduce their emissions by at least 45% compared to 2010.

By 2050. Transition to “net zero emissions”, must be achieved.

El Acuerdo de París es un tratado internacional sobre el cambio climático jurídicamente vinculante. Fue adoptado por 196 Partes en la COP21 en París, el 12 de diciembre de 2015 y entró en vigor el 4 de noviembre de 2016.
Su objetivo es limitar el calentamiento mundial por debajo de 2 grados, preferiblemente a 1,5 grados centígrados, en comparación con los niveles preindustriales (de 1850-1900). (UNFCCC)
El Acuerdo de París es un hito en el proceso multilateral del cambio climático porque, por primera vez,  todos los países se unen en una causa común para emprender esfuerzos ambiciosos para combatir el cambio climático y adaptarse a sus efectos. (UNFCCC)

El proceso de reducción o eliminación de las emisiones de carbono y otros gases de efecto invernadero (GEI) resultantes de actividades humanas, como la producción de energía, la industria y el transporte, se denomina descarbonización y su objetivo es lograr «cero emisiones» y combatir el cambio climático.

The Paris Agreement is a legally binding international climate change treaty, adopted by 196 Parties at COP21 in Paris on December 12, 2015, and entered into force on November 4, 2016.

It aims to limit global warming to below 2 degrees, preferably 1.5 degrees Celsius, compared to pre-industrial levels (1850-1900). 

The Paris Agreement is a milestone in the multilateral climate change process because, for the first time, it is a binding agreement that brings all countries together in a common cause to undertake ambitious efforts to combat climate change and adapt to its effects. (UNFCCC)

The process of reducing or eliminating human-generated carbon emissions and other greenhouse gases (GHGs) resulting from activities such as energy production, industry, and transportation is known as decarbonization. The ultimate goal of decarbonization is to achieve zero emissions and mitigate climate change.


The first European climate law presented by the European Commission in 2020 proposes a legally binding target of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 as part of the EU Green Deal.

This ambitious objective is supported by initiatives to achieve the industry transition towards a sustainable model based on the principles of the circular economy, which pursues the following objectives:

  • Optimize the use of resources.
  • Minimize the extraction of virgin resources
  • Maintain resources (products, parts, materials, and energy) within closed loops as long as possible
  • Prevent the generation of negative externalities in all processes.

Ecodesign’s strategic and innovative approach is a key tool to achieve circularity. It is regulated by ISO 14006 and improves a product or service’s environmental performance by addressing all stages of its life cycle, from conception to final management.

Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) ISO 14040 and 14044

ISO 14040 describes the principles and framework for life cycle assessments, while ISO 14044 sets out the requirements.

  • LCA is a methodology for compiling and evaluating the inputs and outputs of matter and energy and the potential impacts of a product, service, process or activity throughout its life cycle, from cradle to grave.
  • LCA includes the consumption of raw materials and energy necessary for production, the emissions and waste generated during the performance of the productive activity, and the environmental effects of its transportation, use and final management as waste.
  • The LCA is quantitative and objective.

This methodology is highly effective 

  • in evaluating the environmental performance of diverse activities
  • communicating unique environmental benefits for marketing purposes 
  • providing a scientific approach during decision-making that avoids value judgments and subjectivity.

According to the standard, there are four phases to conduct a Life Cycle Assessment:

  1. Definition of objective and scope
  2. Life cycle inventory (LCI) analysis: collecting and quantifying inputs and outputs
  3. Life cycle impact assessment (LCIA): understand and evaluate the magnitude and significance of possible environmental impacts.
  4. Interpretation of results: reporting and identifying the reasons behind high or low values.

Environmental Product Declaration (EPD)

  • The Environmental Product Declaration, EPD, is an internationally harmonized communication standard that shows relevant information related to the environmental profile of a product or service based on its Life Cycle Analysis (LCA). Transparently and verified by an independent third party.
  • They are regulated by the ISO 14025 standard (Type III environmental labels and declarations). The standard indicates that the objective of EPDs is to present environmental information to allow comparison between products, services or activities that fulfil the same function.
  • Therefore, an EPD is considered an “eco-label”; however, its main difference from other eco-labels is that an EPD does not define environmental requirements or minimum values (there is no list of environmental prerequisites that the product must meet), shows the objective results of the LCA study.

Carbon Footprint

A carbon footprint is “the totality of greenhouse gases emitted directly or indirectly by an individual, organization, event or product.”

• Carbon footprint of an organization. ISO 14064 and GHG protocol standards.
It measures the total GHG (Greenhouse Gases) emitted by an organization, directly or indirectly, in developing its activity over one year with a result expressed in tons of CO2 equivalent.
• Product carbon footprint. The ISO 14067 Standard measures the GHGs emitted throughout a product’s life cycle: from the extraction of raw materials through processing, manufacturing, and distribution to the use stage and end of useful life (deposit, reuse, or recycled).
Water Footprint

Water footprint

•  According to the ISO 14046 standard is based on the Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) methodology, establishing the principles, requirements and guidelines for a correct evaluation of the water footprint of products, processes and organizations based on the analysis of contributions to the Water Scarcity impact category throughout the life cycle of a product or organization.

Environmental footprint.

• The Environmental Footprint is a comprehensive environmental impact indicator that considers various criteria. It reflects the effect of human and business activities on the environment throughout the entire life cycle. The Environmental Footprint evaluates environmental performance in up to 16 impact categories, including climate change, water use and resource use.

Decarbonization is the process of reducing or eliminating carbon emissions and other greenhouse gases (GHGs) resulting from human activities such as energy production, industry, and transportation. Its goal is to achieve zero emissions and combat climate change.

“Net zero” refers to the goal of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions as close to zero as possible. This includes all three scopes (1, 2, and 3) to achieve a balance between the amount of GHG gases produced and the amount removed from the atmosphere.

Scope 1. Direct GHG emissions

Direct greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions come from sources owned or controlled by the company, such as emissions from own vehicles and combustion in boilers or ovens.

Scope 2 refers to indirect greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that are associated with the electricity used by the company.

This includes emissions from the generation of electricity that the company purchases and consumes. It could be electricity purchased or brought within the company’s organizational boundary.

Scope 3 covers other indirect emissions

It includes all the emissions that result from the company’s activities but occur from sources that the company does not control or own. For instance, these emissions may arise from the extraction and production of the materials acquired by the company, transportation of purchased fuels, and the use of products and services sold.
