Coordinated by ADEME between 2014 and 2018, this LIFE project (European funding program) brought together France, Italy, Hungary, Croatia and Greece.
Clim’Foot facilitates the development of public policies designed to calculate and reduce the carbon footprint of organizations.
Clim’Foot, through a unique European cooperation project, provides training in greenhouse gas emissions accounting, by adapting a specific version of the Bilan Carbone® to the challenges of each country.
This simplified tool – called Bilan Carbone® Clim’Foot – has been adapted for the needs of the project, and made available to participating countries to enable them to benefit from a transfer of French skills and know-how. The good news is that it is now available to anyone wishing to follow the Clim’Foot training course!
What’s more, the project has necessitated the development of new emission factors, both for each country and for the whole of Europe. Training courses have been created by our partner, the Institut de Formation Carbone, and are available on the project website.
In France, Clim’Foot is experimenting with a new methodology for assessing organizations’ low-carbon strategies: ACT (Assessing low Carbon Transition).
The ABC’s role
ABC’s involvement in the project has involved close collaboration with the technical board, made up of 5 institutional partners:
- Center for renewable energy sources and saving (CRES – Greece)
- Energy Institute Hrvoye Pozar (EIHP – Croatia)
- Italian national agency for new technologies, energy and sustainable economic development (ENEA – Italy)
- Herman Otto Institute (HOI – Hungary)
