What others have said about the Product Standard

A consistent approach to measure and report GHG emissions in the corporate value chain and product life cycles are in great demand. These standards will help us respond to customer demand for environmental information and make it easier for us to communicate the environmental aspects of our products and the efforts that our company is making to successfully manage our emissions. Steve Leffin, Director of Global Sustainability, UPS

The broad scope and diversity of our operations means that having a common method to measure and understand the emissions across our value chain is essential. The GHG Protocol standards provide us a globally applicable method for quantification as well as guiderails to adapt and identify the best opportunities for efficient and effective emissions management. This is an economically, as well as an environmentally valuable tool. Robert ter Kuile, Senior Director Environmental Sustainability, PepsiCo

The GHG Protocol Product Standard gives us a globally consistent approach to measure and manage our product emissions that will help us innovate and improve our products over time. This knowledge may bring us savings in both carbon and cost, but it is also exciting to think what this might mean for the future of customer education and purchasing. In a world where knowledge is power, the GHG Protocol Product Standard gives us and our customers the information needed to make informed decisions. Kevin Anton, Chief Sustainability Officer, Alcoa
