Update of the program in Italy

ENEA is in charge of nine organizations (especially public and administrations).The ENEA experimentation of the voluntary programme are working very well.

Five organization have completed the tools with at least emission from scope 1 and 2 (Ratti spa, School of Managemen and Economics (SME), Arpae, Agri 200, and University Roma 3). Another one (University of Bologna) has defined the perimeters and ENEA will met it the 8th of March in order to support it in the implementation of CFO. Other three “face to face” meeting were carried out with ARPAE (29th Jennuary), School of Management and Economics (15th February) and Città metropolitana di Torino (16th February). These meetings were very useful for the organizations to conclude their case studies, clarifying all the doubts on the use of tools, the chosen of emissions factors and the implementation of the final report. Furthermore SME has implemented the final report on calculation of it’s carbon footprint. 

In particular we would highlight the experimentation with the Città metropolitana di Torino as good example of replicability of the Clim’Foot approach. Indeed they are working with 5 high schools training the students to calculate their Carbon footprint and involving them to implement the final report on calculation of school CF with the aim to increase their environment awareness of the students.

Moreover the end-users in charge of ENEA are giving evaluable feedback on the usability of the ClimFoot tools, the main constraints and possible improvement.

Visits :

ENEA visited head quarter of Città Metropolitana di Torino on 16th February 2018. The meeting with local police makers (Responsible of the Office for the environmental planning and education office and Agenda 21 and the Energy Manager) was very useful to spread the Clim’foot approach. Indeed Città Metropolitana di Torino has jet involved the students of 5 high school to calculate the school Carbon footprint and would like to involve other schools for the next years with the aim to increase the environment awareness in the students. Moreover it would implement the Bilan Carbone© tool in the set of indicators monitored by the Energy manager.


Ecoinnovazione is also in charge of supporting nine organizations from agriculture, construction, pharmaceutical, cosmetic and services sectors, in the calculation of the Carbon Footprint of Organisation.

The organizations have adopted the most complete approach for the CFO calculation, thus considering scope 1, scope 2 and scope 3. For doing so, they have detailed the data collected along the value chain, clearly documenting the type of data for each scope category.

The experimentation by the nine organizations is giving valuable feedback for the further development of EFs Databases, as it is highligting future needs in terms of EFs development and economic sectors coverage by the national and Clim’foot Databases. Moreover, one of the involved organizations required for a Life Cycle Assessment study, which is being used to cross-check the CFO results, thus providing further valuable feedback on the Clim’foot database robusteness.

Currently, most of the involved organizations have completed the data collection and are analysing the CFO results. Moreover, a subset of the organisations is now working on identifying mitigation actions and on their implementation.
