Greenhouse gas emissions assessment

Reference year
01/01/2022 - 31/12/2022
Assessment result
1.326,49 kg CO₂e per 1000 Liter
Assessment methodology

The accounting of the product was carried out in accordance with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol “Product Life Cycle Accounting and Reporting Standard” and the “Methodology for Product Carbon Footprint Calculations for Lubricants and other Specialities” of UEIL and ATIEL. using the Cradle-to-Gate approach.

Declared unit: 1000 Liter
System boundary: cradle-to-gate

Cradle-to-gate refers to the assessment of a product’s greenhouse gas emissions up to the (factory) gate’ and therefore includes only the emissions up to the point at which the product leaves the company. It does not consider use and disposal. In this case, it is also referred to as a partial PCF. This also corresponds to the recommendations of the methodology for PCF calculation of the lubricant associations UEIL and ATIEL.

reduction measures

The company is aware that greenhouse gas emissions must be avoided and reduced as far as possible. Offsetting by means of carbon credits shall only be perceived as an additional – if albeit vital – measure to achieve the 1.5°C target set out in the Paris Climate Agreement. The offsetting share must be gradually reduced in this context.


The company has acquired carbon credits to offset the greenhouse gas emissions as assessed.
Offsetting period
01/01/2024 - 31/12/2024
Number of credits (1 credit = 1t CO₂e)
