Carbon Footprint of Product Expert” is the first 16 hours module of a comprehensive pathway for GHG Verifier/Validator, qualified by CEPAS, for a total of 40 hours.

CEPAS is an Italian Personnel and Training Courses certification body and is a full member of IPC (International Personnel Certification Association), an association that gathers the main auditor and training certification bodies, as well as some accreditation bodies at the global level.

The complete training includes two additional modules: a module (8 hours) on the Organization GHG inventories (ISO 14064-1), and a module (16 hours) on the verification/validation (ISO 14064-3) and accreditation requirements (ISO 17029 e ISO 14065).

Aequilibria can count on a deep experience with international trainings on Carbon Footprint of Product, and on the extremely positive outcomes achieved during the Italian editions of the CEPAS qualified training sessions. Building on these experiences, Aequilibria now also offers the English version of the first module for GHG Verifier/Validator.


Because the lecturer, Daniele Pernigotti, was the Convenor of the Working Group that developed the ISO 14067 standard, the internationally recognised reference standard for the Carbon Footprint of Product.
    An added value is represented by the fact that, besides providing a thorough analysis of the ISO 14067 requirements, this allows to understand the reasons that led to the choices made during the standard development.
      In addition, it should be noted that Daniele is since many years the Technical Advisor on GHG for Accredia (the Italian Accreditation Body), and the Lead Assessor for several international Accreditation Bodies. Therefore, his sound theoretical knowledge of the standardization context is combined with a consolidated practical experience with verification and validation activities.


      The Carbon Footprint of Product Expert module is made of 4 sessions, each of them lasting 4 hours.

      The training opens with an introduction on the scientific, politic, and economic context of climate change. Successively, it analyses the pathway that led to the development of the ISO 14067, the standard contents, the LCA basics and the correct methods for results communication.

      One of the interesting aspects of the training is that it also includes practical exercises, allowing for a simple and effective experience of some crucial aspects of the CFP quantification.


      • Knowledge and comprehension of the reference standard on Carbon Footprint of Product (CFP).
      • Understanding of the methodologies to plan and perform the quantification and communication of the Carbon Footprint of Product (CFP).
