Open Footprint Forum

Reliable tracking of environmental footprint data is a global concern for corporations, governments, and consumers. 

Accurate data on emissions, material, and energy consumption is essential for mandatory compliance reporting and meeting transparency demands. It is also key in taking action to avoid, reduce, and offset emissions. 

Organizations today face many significant challenges when it comes to managing their environmental footprints, including:

  • • Increasing requirements for reliable environmental disclosure to customers, regulators, and society 
  • • Consistency in data measurement, compatibility, and interoperability throughout supply chains
  • • A lack of standards for recording and processing environmental footprint data

The Open Footprint Forum will create a common model for footprint-related data covering all types of emissions, consumptions (e.g. water, land, energy) and base calculations to normalize and aggregate data.
