Carbon Minds is the first provider of secondary data fully aligned with TfS guidelines

TfS – TOGETHER FOR SUSTAINABILITY AISBL (TfS), an industry-leading initiative driven by chemical procurement specialists, officially endorsed Carbon Minds as the first provider of secondary data fully aligned with TfS guidelines.


This latest article from TfS provides a recap of key points from “The Product Carbon Footprint Guideline for the Chemical Industry”, a pioneering guide for the standardization of product carbon footprint (PCF) calculations for chemicals. The guideline’s latest version, published in 2022, highlights the urgent need for high-quality carbon footprint data and advocates a harmonized approach to PCF calculations.

Recognizing the significant momentum and benefits of harmonization, Carbon Minds has taken a major step forward by aligning our database that aligns with the TfS standards, providing even greater quality and comparability of emissions data. What sets this achievement apart is our TÜV Rheinland Group certification, which confirms the consistency and compliance of our approach enables easier certification of calculation results for companies using the TfS guidelines or responding to requests for TfS-aligned calculations.

We are grateful and would like to thank TfS for this endorsement. This recognition strengthens our resolve to continue providing innovative solutions that contribute to more sustainable chemical value chains and the benefits these bring society.
