DEVELOPMENT OF INTERNAL CALCULATION TOOL OF CARBON FOOTPRINT FOR WOOD PRODUCTS
Tool for measuring global warming potential generated not only by the elaboration of a certain product of the company in the sawmill phase, but also the previous phases, which may not be managed by the company itself; such as the extraction of raw material and transport to the sawmill, that is, what is called "Analysis of Carbon Footprint from Cradle to Door". This type of analysis also includes the carbon footprint derived from the manufacture of other substances and products used in the manufacturing itself, such as treatments for wood, oil consumed and fuel and energy used, among others, as well as the management of waste produced during processing.
This self-diagnosis tool has helped FINSA optimize its own production process from an environmental point of view. The tool has been designed in correlation with the requirements established by different references of calculation of Carbon Footprint (GHG Protocol, PAS2050, ISO 14067).
