Footprint assessments have been a key tool for companies in the Middle East that are trying to understand the environmental impacts of their operations, value chains, and products or services. They’re often used to assess multiple impact categories such as carbon emissions, water or land use, and resource depletion on the full journey from sourcing to manufacturing to use and disposal.
Large companies across the region rely on environmental footprinting techniques (including corporate reporting, life-cycle assessments, and environmentally extended input-output analysis) to back up sustainability claims and reporting, and the footprinting industry is growing as methodologies and standards proliferate. Growth is expected to continue as regulatory moves.
