NIT is promoting environmental practices and offers the possibility to achieve environmentally friendly shipbuilding solutions with Carbon Footprint Calculation. Carbon Footprint Calculation provides trustworthy and comparable data of the environmental impact of products and their life cycle.
Carbon Footprint Calculation states the environmental impact of the specific ship interior area product by product. Calculation includes also the carbon handprint which indicates the positive environmental impact. Results state the Global Warming Potential (GWP) of calculated products in kg CO2e. Developed together with VTT (Technical Research Center of Finland) calculation tool is based on EN 15804 standard that considers different stages of the product life cycle.
Results can be used for reducing emissions by selecting more efficient solutions and material choices. The data can also be utilized for e.g. sustainability report or compensation of the carbon footprint.
We help you find more environmentally friendly solutions for ship interiors:
- Providing GWP calculation of the ship area with carbon footprint
- Validated and comparable data to reduce carbon footprint
- Gaining carbon handprint and receiving reduction potential
- Consultation for optimizing material solutions and usage stage
Our services include carbon footprint and handprint calculations, calculation report, consultation for more sustainable solutions and materials and the certificate of the environmental impact. Service can be customized according to your needs and products.
Carbon footprint and handprint were calculated for the ship’s crew area. Stairs were redesigned optimizing the installation and making efficient choices for interior materials. GWP of all materials were calculated and better solutions were put in use in order to minize the environmental impact.
Results were validated with Carbon Footprint Calculation and carbon emissions were reduced by -719 kg CO2e(-21%) per stair module.
