Product carbon footprint working group for the lubricants industry

Product carbon footprint working group for the lubricants industry

UEIL (Union of the European Lubricants Industry) is pleased to announce a collaboration with ATIEL (The Technical Association of the European Lubricants Industry) to develop a methodology to calculate and report Product Carbon Footprints (PCFs) for Lubricants and Greases.

Beginning in January 2023, a working group has come together under the guidance of a consultant to develop a harmonized cradle-to-gate PCF methodology.

The aim of the PCF WG is to develop a common standard that can be used by the whole lubricants industry, ensuring consistency and transparency throughout the entire supply chain.

It is anticipated that the PCF methodology for the Lubricants and Grease industry will be published in the second half of 2023. Further communications will be scheduled throughout H1 2023 to keep UEIL members and other supply chain stakeholders informed regarding progress.

In the meantime, UEIL is aware that lubricant and grease blenders / marketers are being asked to provide PCFs for their products but in the absence of industry standard methodology this is challenging and makes comparisons between products and suppliers difficult, unless suppliers provide full discloser of the methodology applied when calculating PCFs for their raw materials.

In support of members and non-members alike, UEIL Sustainability Committee has prepared a template letter so that stakeholders who are currently unable to provide PCF data or wish to take a holding position can inform their downstream stakeholders of the initiative being undertaken and their future commitment to provide PCFs for their lubricants and greases.
