Introducing Instep Greenscore Product Lifecycle Assessment Programme

Greenscore is a Product Carbon Footprint Programme based around ISO14067.(Carbon footprint of products – Requirements and guidelines for quantification and communication). This is a new standard currently in draft form and due for publication in 2014.
