4th PCF World Summit: From standardisation to communication

Start/Stop Date:
20–21 Oct 2010
PCF World Forum
Focus Areas:
Type of Event:

The challenges for reducing GHG emissions in the value chains are manifold. For the past years substantial methodological work has been undertaken to develop a basis for the uniform assessment of product carbon footprints. The major standards are now moving closer to completion - the GHG Protocol Product and Scope 3 standards are expected for later this year after intensive road-testing by more than 70 companies. The ISO standard will likely soon enter the status of a draft international standard.

With these standards moving to completion the debate on adequate communication and engagement with consumers for GHG reductions is in full swing - the discussions at the last PCF World Summit already expressed a clear need for more refined approaches and discussions. Clarity on standards and communication approaches and requirements is important to tackle the issue of low carbon consumption and production in an efficient, credible and effective way, for business, governments, civil society and solution providers alike.

The 4th PCF World Summit “From Standardisation to Communication”, will dedicate two full days to help you raise and discuss important questions on the current status and perspectives of standardisation and communication in product carbon footprinting:

  • WRI/WBCSD GHG Protocol road-testing results
  • Latest developments in the ISO 14067 standardisation process
  • Perspective of PAS 2050. What will a revision bring?
  • Product Category Rules: Status of international harmonisation
  • Mandatory carbon labelling in France: What are the impacts?
  • What drives climate conscious consumer behaviour? What role can product design play?
  • Debate: Carbon labelling in the perception of the consumer

The two-day Fourth PCF World Summit “From Standardisation to Communication” will take place on October 20-21, 2010 in Berlin, Germany.
