Shanghai Guanhua: The nation's first carbon-neutral kitchenware based on ISO 14068-1 hits the market

In just over twenty days, Shanghai Guanhua completed the carbon footprint assessment of its three Casserole with Lid treasure pots through the Carbon Newture digital carbon management platform. It has become the first in the country to achieve carbon neutrality in kitchenware based on the internationally recognized carbon neutrality standard ISO 14068-1. The carbon neutrality certificate was issued by the internationally accredited third-party certification body TÜV SÜD.

Business pain points

  • Requirements of carbon policies at home and abroad: Driven by the requirements of dual carbon policies at home and abroad, kitchenware enterprises are facing or are about to face a "green threshold". For example, some countries require imported goods to meet specific low-carbon standards, otherwise they may face additional taxes or restrictions.

  • Difficulty and obstacles in carbon emission verification: Due to the lack of professional knowledge and digital technology, enterprises may find it difficult to grasp the correct methods for carbon data collection and calculation, and may not understand how to effectively reduce carbon emissions. Furthermore, products typically involve complex supply chains and production processes, making carbon footprint calculations more complicated. In addition, the increasing compliance risks and cost pressures may also become obstacles for enterprises on the road to carbon neutrality.

  • Lack of Differentiated Competitive Advantage: Kitchenware enterprises face fierce competition in the global market, and obtaining carbon neutral certification provides a differentiated competitive advantage. It helps enterprises establish a green brand image in the market, stand out in homogeneous competition, and strengthen their competitive edge.


Integrated solution

Carbon footprint calculation service: Through the digital carbon management platform provided by Carbon Newture, Shanghai Guanhua efficiently addressed the difficulties in modeling the lifecycle of three products from cizzle, including data and proof material entry. This helped Shanghai Guanhua to complete the carbon footprint accounting of its products in a short period of time, ensuring compliance with the requirements of dual carbon policies at home and abroad, and providing strong support for the company's green development.

Carbon neutrality Verification service: After completing the carbon footprint accounting for the three products from cizzle, Shanghai Guanhua practiced carbon emission reduction by reducing carbon emissions in the main raw material production stage and increasing the proportion of photovoltaic power generation in the energy structure. Additionally, with the assistance of Carbon Newture, carbon offsetting was conducted through the purchase of green electricity and carbon credits. As a result, the three products obtained the carbon neutrality certification certificate based on the ISO14068-1 international standard issued by TÜV Süd, ensuring the compliance and authority of carbon data.

Compliant carbon data disclosure: Carbon Newture helped Shanghai Guanhua upload the authenticated product carbon data to the "China Carbon Disclosure Platform for Light Industrial Products and Arts-Crafts". This platform provides a window for enterprises to showcase their practical achievements in environmental protection. Moreover, the platform relies on technologies such as blockchain, big data, and the IoT to ensure the transparency, security, and traceability of product carbon data. By disclosing carbon data, the company enhances its brand's green image and market competitiveness, which is conducive to expanding business cooperation opportunities.
