The topic of carbon footprint measurement has become increasingly important and has spread from the largest to the smallest companies, especially with the emergence of the so-called "scope 3" approach, which is considered increasingly necessary to ensure a credible commitment to decarbonization by companies, involving the supply chain and, in more advanced versions ("scope 4"), the entire value chains, to cover the entire life cycle of products and services that the organization offers in the market, including their end-of-life. The most recognized international initiatives, such as the Science Based Target, require companies to report thoroughly and comprehensively on the emissions of their supply chains. The tools for measurement are diverse, although, for obvious reasons, the life-cycle approach is emerging as the most robust, especially from the perspective extended to value chains even downstream of the production and marketing of goods and delivery of services. At the same time, mandatory legislation and voluntary standards are increasingly requesting to fully integrate the carbonisation in all management strategies. Example of this are the requirements of decarbonisation plan in different EU Directive proposal and the inclusion of decarbonisation as a key element of the ISO High Level Structure for management systems. Moreover very strong emphasis has been put by the European Union on the way in which carbon neutrality claims can be communicated on the market following strict rules.

The workshop, following the previous edition in 2023 aims to analyse the challenge of measuring CO2eq emissions in its various dimensions, placing itself primarily from the perspective of businesses.
