Method

Icoms Detections requested the expertise of D-Carbonize and used our software designed to calculate carbon footprints accurately.

Emissions measurement

To obtain its carbon footprint, Icoms Detections engaged in a collaborative approach to collect the required data, involving multiple stakeholders.

Emissions reduction

Based on the carbon footprint assessment conducted, carbon reduction opportunities were identified and quantified.

Product carbon footprint

The carbon footprint of one of Icoms Detections’ flagship products was assessed and compared to competitors’ product.

Impact

Provided Icoms with a competitive advantage by demonstrating that one of their product has a lower footprint by 30% and 70% than two of their competitors’ product.

Focused efforts on energy consumption of its products and facilitate Icoms engineers to identify reduction actions.

Gained a deeper understanding of the environmental footprint of its offerings.

We have asked D-Carbonize to compute our carbon footprint and help us identify ways to decrease it. We are very satisfied with the analysis of D-Carbonize and their continuous support along the project. It allowed us to build environmental awareness among the team, collect data efficiently, share the knowledge accumulated along the way, and present the results to the entire team.

We strongly appreciate D-Carbonize’s will to empower us in the carbon assessment process to internaize as much as possible this new competence.
