Activities of the project

 

In order to reach the objectives of the project, the LIFE Clim'Foot beneficiaries are notably implementing the following actions:

Activity

Progress

The development of two complete toolboxes:

  1. One for policy makers that includes country-specific material to enable policy makers to support the implementation of climate change policies involving an important number of public and private organisations;
  2. One for both public and private organisations that supports them to calculate and/or reduce their carbon footprints.

Ongoing

The creation of specific training tools, based on the existing methodologies for carbon accounting, to train National policy makers to the design and implementation of CFO public policies

Completed

The development of country-specific data, that includes the creation of National databases of emission factors, together with adapted training material addressing the organisations that will participate to the public policy

Almost achieved

The implementation of new voluntary programmes to develop carbon accounting in the five participating countries, at different levels depending on the maturity of practices in each country. This leads to the development of public policies that incentives public and private organisations to calculate and even to reduce their carbon footprint, following their level of maturity.

Almost achieved

The assessment of the environmental and socio-economic impact of the project

Ongoing

 

Since the climate problem targeted concerns the 28 EU Members States, the replicability potential will be specifically assessed at the end of the project, together with the transferability one in a perspective of multicriteria approach. To optimize the replicability of the project and transfer of the project results among other public entities, a training of at least 30 European policy makers (out of the consortium) will be organized to prepare the extension and pursuit of the Clim'Foot approach in other European countries.

An important dissemination campaign is currently implemented to raise awareness of EU policy makers and invite them to join the LIFE Clim'Foot initiative. In addition, networking activities will take place to widen the project impact and ensure that the project fits with stakeholders' requirements.
