dc.description.abstract This document is intended to provide a guide to assessing a carbon brainprint. It was developed as the project case studies were conducted, starting from a set of general principles and becoming more specific. It is guided by the principles used by the IPCC, PAS 2050:2008 and Carbon Trust good practice. However, a carbon brainprint is not an assessment of the life cycle greenhouse gas emission of a specific good or service. In particular, the emphasis is mainly on total changes in emissions, not the functional unit, and general estimates rather than product-specific ones may be required. The guidance covers definitions, basic principles, system boundaries, attribution, uncertainty analysis and the scope and limits of application of the method. en_UK
