Qu’est-ce qu’un Gaz à Effet de Serre (GES) ?

Les Gaz à Effet de Serre (GES) sont des substances gazeuses qui ont la capacité de retenir la chaleur dans l’atmosphère. Cet effet de serre est amplifié par les émissions liées aux activités humaines et il est responsable du changement climatique. Les principaux gaz émis sont : le dioxyde de carbone (CO2), le méthane (CH4), l’oxyde nitreux (N2O), les hydrofluorocarbures (HFC), les perfluorocarbures  (PFC), ou encore l’hexafluorure de soufre (SF6).

What is a Life Cycle Assessment?

A Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is an environmental evaluation approach that considers the entire life cycle of a product or service, from raw material acquisition through processing, distribution, use, and end-of-life processes. LCA is a multi-criteria approach i.e. it takes into account several environmental issues. Through such a perspective, environmental burden shifting between life cycle stages or individual processes can be identified and avoided. A similar approach is undertaken for LCA of organisations or projects.

What is a carbon footprint?

A carbon footprint is a type of environmental footprint focusing on a single environmental issue: climate change.
