What it does

BearingPoint's Emissions calculator provides process, product and corporate carbon footprint calculation in one application.

It enables you to assess your carbon emissions for the entire life cycle of a product or a service. To assess emissions at corporate level, it calculates emissions from both business travel and commuting:

What it does - BearingPoint's Emissions Calculator

BearingPoint’s Emissions Calculator automatically makes cradle-to-grave assessments for thousands of products and even allocates emissions down to an individual customer.

It is not only a reporting software - it comes with services!

  • Baseline calculations
    We support you all along the way, from setting up the system, analyzing the data, and handling missing data to validating the results. We take care of updating emission factors and new regulatory requirements.
  • Emissions reductions 
    We have more than 10 years of experience in how to reduce carbon emissions. Our Emissions Calculator allows you to simulate savings from new sourcing strategies, mode shifts, new technologies, new fuel types and more. You also benefit from several hundred proven reduction measures, including investments.
  • Carbon neutral, offsetting, carbon taxes
    Within BearingPoint’s Emissions Calculator, you will find an embedded CO2 offsetting costs/ CO2 tax module that helps you assess the costs from CO2. Also, we have partners that deliver trusted certificates or dedicated offsetting projects.

What makes us different 

  • Integrated: one software solution for process, product and corporate carbon footprints
  • Modular: separate building blocks for material acquisition and processing, production, distribution and storage, use, end of life, business travel and commuting/ client and visitor transport
  • Compliant: in line with GHG protocol, ISO 14064, ISO 14067 plus dedicated certifications for EN16258, 2011:1336 and GLEC
  • Plug and play: emissions factors, electricity mixes, networks, vehicles and infrastructure databases embedded
  • Flexible: various options to interact starting from manual uploads to fully automated processing
  • Powerful: millions of calculations within seconds with the help of big data (SAP HANA via cloud service)
  • Quick and easy: due to cloud service, no IT requirements or installations on your side – standard interfaces are up and running
  • Secure: certified by SAP and its data center in Europe
  • Accurate: calculations on transaction or SKU level possible, powerful validation engine
  • Smart: extracting and transforming of data automated (ETL)
  • Automated: in line with carbon accounting requirements and assured service levels
  • Complete: CO2, CO2e WTW/ TTW, NOx, SOx, PM, etc.  
  • Up-to-date: emissions factors and compliance with leading standards

Where can you use it

Over the last ten years, we have helped clients with their carbon footprint in the following industries and sectors:

  • Fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG)
  • Retail
  • Logistics
  • Automotive
  • Industrial manufacturing
  • Chemicals
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Telcos
  • Fashion, luxury goods

Use case process carbon footprint

An example of a process carbon footprint is assessing the CO2 emissions and other air pollutants from transportation. Our application helps to assess emissions for all modes of transportation and even for passenger transportation. Key questions are:

  • What are my total emissions from (outsourced) transportation?
  • Which transport produces the largest amount of CO2?
  • What are the saving potentials from performing a mode shift?
  • What impact can I expect from implementing new technologies (e-trucks, LNG ships, etc.)?

More info on dedicated process carbon footprints can be found here:

If other components become relevant later, those can be easily integrated thanks to the modular setup.

Use case product carbon footprint (PCF)

An extremely valuable but often challenging task is comparing the emissions of single products across all components and plants. Visibility at product-level for thousands of products allows you to answer key questions about your business:

  • How much CO2e does the production of one unit of Product 1 together with all its related processes (material acquisition, transportation, storage, etc.) create?
  • How high is the impact of areas such as raw material acquisition or transportation on the production of one unit of a given product?
  • Plant A and Plant B are both producing the same product. However, emissions to produce one unit of Product 1 are 10% higher in Plant A than in Plant B. What is the reason for this deviation? Is it distance to supplier, production inefficiencies, distance to market?

Product carbon footprint comparison by plant

A product carbon footprint helps to compile emissions from all components of a finished product along its value chain.

Such comparisons help you to detect inefficiencies easily, perform industry benchmarks, and incorporate sustainability indicators into marketing campaigns and sustainability reports.

Use case corporate carbon footprint (CCF)

Our software works as an Emissions Control Center by providing management dashboards. These pre-configured dashboards pinpoint your energy and carbon drivers in one view. Also, the embedded prediction feature indicates if you will meet emission reduction goals or not. Typical questions:

  • Which regions are responsible for the highest emissions?
  • Which business line, which customer, or which product is responsible for the highest carbon emissions?
  • What do we need to reduce our carbon footprint by 30% by the year 2030?

Together we can make the move!
