Our methodology is based on the Carbon Database from ADEME. Since its creation in 2002, this database is continuously updated with data coming from many partners from the public and private sectors. Because of its experience and affiliation with the Association Bilan Carbone, ADEME’s carbon database is the world’s reference on the matter. Since 2002, it has helped produce over 6,000 carbon footprint calculation.
