Research output: Book/ReportReport


Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our time. At the same time,
we have multiple other environmental issues at hand, such as the responsible
use of resources.

Since the publication of the Carbon Handprint Guide in 2018, the research work
has continued to extend the applicability of the framework to incorporate other
positive environmental impacts in addition to greenhouse gases. Examples used
in the development of the methodology have covered water, nutrient, air quality
and resource handprint calculations. Moreover, we have discussed how to address
environmental handprints at organization and project levels.

This revised version of the Carbon handprint guide has been developed by a team
of researchers at VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd and LUT University.
This would not have been possible without committed partners, professional
invited experts and other stakeholders actively attending workshops and providing
valuable contributions to the development of the framework. We would like to
highly acknowledge all of you!
