Car industry : carbon footprint quantification training project launched

August 12, 2022

(TAP) - A pilot project of 'training accompanying experts for carbon footprint quantification' was launched on August 4 by the Tunis International Centre for Environmental Technologies (French: CITET), in collaboration with the German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ).

This is a pilot project which provides theoretical training and personalised practical coaching of accompanying experts through technical assistance by a group of 15 companies operating in the car industry for the carbon footprint quantification of their products.

A call for applications to participate in this training programme was launched. The training includes four modules and will be delivered in two phases over 15 months starting week 3 of next September.

The Tunisian car industry, with around 300 local and international operators, lacks data related to its activities and stakeholders as well as to carbon footprint, according to the Tunisian Automotive Association (TAA).

A national reference system of the Tunisian automotive industry was launched in 2020 by the TAA, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), the European Union, the Ministry of Industry, Energy and Mines and the National Institute of Statistics in partnership with Ernest & Young.

It is designed to give a better visibility to the sector and shed further light on the little known carbon footprint,Ernest & Young said.
