PCR information

This CFP-PCR has expired and cannot be used to register EPDs. Contact the Secretariat for further information.

This document provides Carbon Footprint Product Category Rules (CFP-PCR) for the assessment of the greenhouse gas emissions of UN CPC 01610 (Green coffee).

The CFP-PCR will drive consistency in the application of GHG emissions calculations by reducing differences between individual studies and products, and harmonising methodological approaches. This will support the identification and adoption of genuine mitigation strategies.

Communication of GHG emissions, calculated according to this CFP-PCR, should follow the requirements and guidelines given in the ISO 14020-series of standards and/or the technical specification ISO/TS 14067 "Greenhouse gases - Carbon Footprint of products - Requirements and guidelines for quantification and communication".

Please note that the scope of the document is only greenhouse gas emissions and that other environmental impact cateories and formats for reporting is missing. For information about how this document may be applied within the framework of the International EPD® System, please contact the Secretariat at info@environdec.com.

The CFP-PCR document may be downloaded in PDF format on the right side of this page. The free registration will also enable you to post comments on the PCR Forum.
