This document specifies the general principles and the system boundaries for the carbon and environmental footprint of biobased plastic products. It is an introduction and guidance document to the other standards in this series.

This document is applicable to plastic products and plastic materials, polymer resins, which are based from biobased or fossil-based constituents.

This document defines the material carbon footprint as the amount (mass) of CO2 removed from the air and incorporated into the plastic, and a determination method to quantify it.

This document is applicable to plastic products and plastic materials, polymer resins, which are partly or wholly based on bio-based constituents.

This document specifies principles and requirements for the quantification and reporting of the Process Carbon Footprint of biobased plastics (see ISO/CD 22526-1), being a partial carbon footprint of a bioplastic product, based on ISO 14067 and consistent with the ISO standards on life cycle assessment (ISO 14040 and ISO 14044).

This document is applicable to Process Carbon Footprint studies (P-CFP) of plastic materials, being a partial carbon footprint of a product, whether or not the results are intended to be publicly available.

The Process Carbon Footprint study is carried out according to ISO 14067 as a partial carbon footprint, using the specific conditions and requirements specified in this standard.

Requirements and guidelines for the quantification of a partial carbon footprint of a product (partial CFP) are provided.

Where the results of a P-CF study are reported according to this International Standard, procedures are provided to support transparency and credibility, and also to allow for informed choices.

Offsetting is outside of the scope of this International Standard.
