Abstract
Objective: This work was aimed to study carbon footprint calculation method of printing enterprise. Method: Carbon footprint calculation methods and procedures were studied based on ISO 14064-1 standard and the actual operations of printing enterprises. Carbon footprint of a specific printing enterprise in 2015 was obtained. Result: Carbon footprint of the studied printing enterprise in 2015 was 25,879.35t, among which energy indirect emissions accounted for about 92%, fixed combustion emissions accounted for 7.62%, and mobile combustion emissions accounted for 0.39%. Conclusion: The main carbon emission sources of printing enterprise were energy indirect emissions and fuel combustion emissions. Indirect carbon emissions from electricity generation accounted for more than 90% and direct emissions from gasoline, diesel, natural gas and other fuel combustion accounted for less than 10%.
