Greenhouse gas emissions attributable to products—from food to sneakers to appliances—make up more than 75% of global emissions. -The Carbon Catalogue
Our data, which is publicly availably on nature.com, contains product carbon footprints (PCFs) for various companies. PCFs are the greenhouse gas emissions attributable to a given product, measured in CO2 (carbon dioxide equivalent).
This data is stored in a PostgreSQL database containing one table,
prouduct_emissions, which looks at PCFs by product as well as the stage of production these emissions occured in. Here's a snapshot of what
product_emissions contains in each column:
You'll use this data to examine the carbon footprint of each industry in the dataset!
