The aim of climatop is to label the most climate friendly products and services (best-in-class). Similar products of a product family (functional unit) are compared with respect to their environmental emissions. Products that cause CO2-eq emissions that are generally 20% lower, receive the label. Only products that have an environmental balance, which is at least equal or better than the one of the non-successful competitors, can be labelled. Independent organizations calculate life cycle assessments (LCA) of the products according to the standard ISO 14040. The label is valid for two years.
