The top-down procedure for the determination of the carbon footprint claims only minimal internal resources of the customer. The calculation will be IT based and can be easily integrated into existing environmental management systems. About NADIA the NADIA Institute for energy, ecology and economy in 1999 as a spin-off of the Technical University of Munich founded and provides answers to questions to the environmental sustainability, energy efficiency, international standards and climate protection. The NADIA offers calculation and auditing services, to realize a green vision and to integrate into the business processes. Core business is dealing with the question whether, and especially as a meaningful combination of ecology and economy can be achieved. Ranging from advice in the development, calculation and management of customized analyses to the CO2 footprint to the independent validation of internally or externally generated analyses, methods and results. As an independent Institute, the work of NADIA is based on rigorous scientific methods and institutional and international standards.
