CO2 Footprint

PCF - Product Carbon Footprint

For the year 2019 Merus has had calculated its first CO2 balance. We were supported by First Climate - an international organization with more than 20 years of experience in supporting climate friendly business. Our balance was calculated in accordance with international standards with data provided by the IEA (International Energy Agency) oder Ecoinvent.

The Product Carbon Footprint includes the CO2 emitted throughout the whole product lifecycle. Raw material and production as well as recycling and waste is taken into account when calculating the PCF.

Following our guidelines towards transparency we would like to share our data with you. If you are interested in reading more about our goals and intentions, please have a look at our blog series.
