Counting the cost of carbon

Carbon is the currency of the moment. But instead of spending it, the industry is trying to save it. As energy costs spiral out of control, an optimised carbon footprint becomes an all-round winner – saving both the environment and hard cash. And to help printers in their battle to minimise their carbon emissions, the BPIF has developed a carbon calculator, based on the soon-to-be-launched PAS 2050 specification from the British Standards Institute.PAS 2050 is a method for measuring the “embodied” greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from goods and services. Originally dreamed up by the Carbon Trust and Defra, the publicly-available specification is due for launch in September/October.
