  7. 7. ONGOING DISCUSSION Credibility: “PCF only focuses on a single environmental aspect – emissions “Lack of harmonised of GHG’s.” methodologies and methodological constraints exist.” “Lack of product specific rules (PCRs).” Labels: “Half of all respondents understood what a carbon footprint was, nearly as many “Reference to a CO2 quantity would seek products with remains incomprehensible to the lower footprints.” vast majority of consumers.” 7 Product Carbon Accounting - Market Assessment
  8. 8.
